2020 Vision - This Year and Beyond!

2020 Vision - Do you have it?

We’re taking the idea of ‘2020 Vision’ to share with you some of the things we have in the works for our 2020 Glass Academy vision!  We hope you’ll be as excited about it as we are!

From new classes to the ever-changing products that appear at each of our seven seasonal shows through the year, we’re always thinking up something new and fun for ALL of us to enjoy!

Because really, who likes to do the same thing over and over?  We’re looking to mix things up this year and we want to share some upcoming items and events that you might want to plan your year around. 

Classes:  Yes!  We have heard you and while many of you like our original classes that match the products sold in our themed shows, there are some of you that would like some new classes in addition to these favorites.  Currently, we are prototyping a few new classes, one will debut in March.  I can’t tell you all the details, but I will say, one item is a practical item that also looks super cool sitting on a window sill in your kitchen.  Any guesses?!

Events:  Starting in March, we’ll be changing up our signature Hot Glass + Cold Beer event to a newer streamlined event.  From a once a year event in the hot month of August, were changing it up so we can do a more intimate, monthly beer event, that is smaller in scale and completely dedicated to one specific brewery each month.  We’ll still have the live glassblowing happening and the tasty beer, so stay tuned for this new featured event as we line up the chosen breweries for the 2020 season.

Glassblowing on the road!  Many of you know we purchased a smaller unit that is ON WHEELS!  It’s glassblowing on the GO!  This new unit is fun and easy for us to become mobile and come to YOU!

Our work with non-profits and the local community continues to be one of our strongest assets and since not everyone across the Mid-west can come to us, we’ve decided we could go to them!  This summer - one lucky organization will win the ultimate prize:  The Glass Academy team coming to them for some on-site glassblowing action!!!

Details are still in the works and being developed but we can tell you, this is going to be a game changer for businesses as a fundraising event.  This is going to be a win-win-win for everyone involved! 

Stay tuned for details to be released in February on this special new twist to our business.

In the meantime, be sure to follow us on FB and Instagram for additional news and also on our YouTube channel which will showcase our studio videos and some other fun videos we make just for the heck of it!
