Glassblowing Program

We are excited to announce the addition of a Glassblowing Program at TPCA!

This initiative is a grassroots, nonprofit endeavor that will be the only one of its kind for miles around. Community interest in glassblowing is overwhelming, and the Tyler Park Center for the Arts Glassblowing Program will welcome all skill levels in classes, workshops, and individual studio use.

We have a generous donation of glass equipment; a talented and dedicated “hot shop” technician; a partnership with Bucks County Community College, the Arts and Cultural Council of Bucks County, along with other arts organizations; and experienced professional instructors ready to offer their knowledge. 

Imagine glassblowing, casting, fusing, slumping, torch work, live demonstrations, group and private lessons, studio rentals and workshops…

It’s all glass at TPCA! Donate to this initiative by clicking here.
