The Schack Art Center houses the only public access hot shop between Seattle and Canada. They serve professional glassblowers of all ages, and train students 14 and older to blow glass. They have been approved for funds to help with an upgrade to their high demand glass studios. They will be removing the office in the hot shop to increase artist work space and accommodate a fourth annealer and lockers. With minimal demolition/construction the hot shop square footage can be optimized to accommodate larger professional teams, artists creating larger scale works, and larger classes. They will also be installing windows in the Flame & Kiln Studio and relocating the hot shop office (with IT) to the Flame & Kiln Studio.
