We're in the business of learning!
The Olio is a social enterprise whose mission is to educate and inspire our community through arts, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. We accomplish these goals by offering opportunities for sustainable glass recycling, arts education, and hands-on experiential learning in entrepreneurship.
We offer programs in furnace glassblowing for anyone in the community, as well as an apprenticeship for age 14+ who face barriers, with the goal of creating a diverse, engaging, and fun environment for learning and community empowerment.
All of the glass sold at The Olio is made from almost 100% recycled waste glass that is collected locally by our community. Come visit sometime, take a beginner workshop, or contact us to learn more about our apprenticeship and our recycling efforts.
