Schools: Educational facilities (universities, colleges, public-access studios, summer programs, studios, etc.) that offer instruction in glassworking and wish to be represented in the Education Resource Center are invited to provide informational materials. Whether you wish to bring your handouts and drop them off early or if you plan to ship materials ahead of time, please contact the GAS office at GAS encourages all schools to send a representative to be present by their materials in the Resource Center for the Q&A Hour. This is a great opportunity to meet and speak with potential students.
