Peter Patterson Glassworks

Introduce your group to art beyond paper with a visit to Peter Patterson Glassworks. The artist himself will give them a tour of the studio, gallery, and hot shop. They will learn how art glass is made, and receive an introduction to Patterson's background in art and his work. Obtaining his degree in illustration, he now creates his illustrations in glass, and students and scouts can too! Two programs are available: one in which they can simply watch a demonstration, and one where they can create their own paper weight in the color of their choice with limited participation.
