The studio at KT Glassworks is committed to providing a safe working environment to our local glass artists, students, and our clientele to accommodate their visit to the studio. As we reopen our studio for classes, lessons, and facility rentals, we would like to share with you some changes to the operation of our facility and a safety protocol that we will be implementing.

During Your Visit to the Studio:

  • We will provide you with disinfected safety glasses for you to wear in our studio. If you wear prescription glasses, those work perfectly as well! If you have your preferred stylish safety glasses, please feel free to bring those to your lesson. 

  • We don't recommend wearing gloves while you are blowing glass due to reduced dexterity and its potential increase in the risk of burns.
