Erin's Farm has a working glass studio that offers workshops, workshop minis, and seasonal events throughout the year. Watch, learn or participate in this unique process of creating blown glass.
Just about anyone can enjoy this fun artistic process. We have had home school, Scouts, and team building groups. We make it educational and fun, often adding a walking tour of the farm for groups. Everyone is welcomed to enjoy our farm while they are here!
We have had folks as young as 5 and as old as 88 (so far) come out and give this a try. Algar Dole (gaffer) has been doing this for over 30 years. He has partnered with the farm for over 20 years. He now has a small glass shop at our farm where he instructs short workshops several times a year. His beautiful glass-workings are displayed and sold in our gallery.
Gather up some friends, family, co-workers, Scouts...and participate in a glass blowing event.
