I love this place. I've gone for classes, demos, and lectures. Everything is always well planned and well run. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the artists they get in are first rate. A real asset for Pittsburg.

I took a week long class at the glass center. The facilities and the staff were great. I would do it again. If a class is not for you, then just take the time to visit their gallery and see some fantastic glass art.
