When you Arrive

If you are participating in our Room & Board Plan, an official welcome packet will be waiting for you at the hotel, including dinner meal cards to be used at participating restaurants in Corning.

Please join us at the Museum’s Café at 7 pm for an informal Sunday night dinner the night before your class starts. This dinner is included in our Room & Board plan, but everyone is welcome ($17.28 fee payable the next day if you are not on the plan).

Your class orientation will take place at 8:30 am on your first day of class, in The Studio Lecture Room.

Glass Supplies

The Studio will supply glass and tools during your class, but if there are specific colors, etc. you would like to bring, please feel free.


P.K. Smith, licensed massage therapist, offers 20 minute chair massages at The Studio during the lunch hour on Wednesdays and Fridays. Call her at +1 (607) 936-2814 to schedule more extensive therapy at 211 E. Second Street, Corning, NY.

Studio Rules and Safety

Your safety is of the utmost importance at The Studio. Please review the rules and safety sections of our Welcome Packet to familiarize yourself with best practices before you arrive.
