Mission

The Olio is dedicated to fostering appreciation, inspiring learning, and enhancing enjoyment in the community and for the arts.

We are 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.

 

All of the glass sold at The Olio is made from almost 100% recycled waste glass that is collected locally by our community.

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.
