East Carolina University's GlasStation, which resides about 15 miles west of the Greenville, N.C., main campus in Farmville, N.C., is the result of a grassroots effort by The Farmville Group, a volunteer economic development association interested in growing the local economy through the arts.
The Allen and Stowe families of Farmville donated a former Gulf gas station to the DeVisconti Trust. ECU leases the GlasStation building from the Trust, and have outfitted the GlasStation with equipment to create a functioning hot glass studio.
Undergraduate and graduate ART classes for ECU students focused on glass blowing and making are regularly offered at the GlasStation. The first glass class began in spring semester, 2017.
Continuing education classes for the community will begin in late March, 2017.
