Glen Williams Glass
Open 12 – 5 PM Tuesday to Sunday or by chance (closed on Mondays during January and February)
Glen Williams Glass is a collective studio made up of seven independent glass artists and is part of the Williams Mill Creative Arts Studios. The diversity of experiences and interests of its individual members fosters a creative and experimental environment. Glen Williams Glass is open daily, and welcomes visitors to observe the glassblowing process and enquire about the various techniques and styles of its seven members.
The studio was founded in 1995 by Andrew Kuntz, Glass faculty member at Sheridan College, and Carol Nesbitt, Camilla Willings, Michelle Miller, Megan Kenny and Jennifer Tarrant; graduates of the program. The studio continues to maintain strong ties to the college.
Many of the current members are graduates of Sheridan’s Craft and Design program, and have also sought additional education through courses and workshops at the Studio at Corning Museum of Glass, Pilchuck Glass School, and at Fleming College’s Haliburton School of the Arts. Works made by the artists are exhibited and collected both locally and internationally in public venues and private collections.
In addition to its function as a co-operative, Glen Williams Glass regularly welcomes non-members to the studio. Qualified glassblowers are able to rent the facilities, and each year the studio members award a Summer Scholarship Program to a Sheridan College student.
Residencies may be available. This is a great opportunity for an emerging artist.
