Who We Are

Located in Winston-Salem, NC since 2014, The Olio is an educational glassblowing facility and social enterprise focused on community, arts, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. We offer programs for all ages, budgets, and interest levels to learn about Furnace Glassblowing, an exciting process and medium for sculpture, functional ware, architectural elements, and much more.
We offer Field Trips, Classes & Workshops, Team-Builders, Private Parties, Group Workshops, Apprenticeships, Retail Gallery, and a Specialty Giftware Line. As a sustainable glass studio, we recycle and melt waste glass that saves landfill space, educates about sustainability, and helps to empower our community.
