Resident Assistantship Program

The Resident Assistantship is a professional development opportunity for emerging artists who have recent work experience in a glass blowing studio. Our program will help to further prepare you as a future creative entrepreneur and glass artist. The assistantship trains individuals in the day-to-day studio operations, care for equipment, tools, cold working process, production glass blowing, retail sales, and customer relations. One applicants will be awarded a position per 6 month cohort.
