March 6 - 11, 2017
Local Artists Week

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a full-time artist or craftsperson? Join us at The Corning Museum of Glass from March 6 through 11 as we give you an unprecedented look into the lives and techniques of artists living, working, and making in and around Corning and New York. Throughout the week, flameworkers and hot glassmakers will demonstrate production-style making in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. During these demonstrations, you’ll witness first-hand the precision, dexterity, and speed required of six different artisans and studios.

Then, come back to the Amphitheater on Thursday evening when the participating makers join us for an informal panel discussion. During this time, audience members can ask questions about everything from the processes and techniques of making, to the booking and selling of work after it’s made. At the end of the week, each artisan will have previously finished work available for purchase in the Makers Market and take one last turn demonstrating in one-hour time slots in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. Visit with the makers, see the work they create, and support a local artist.
