Located in Winston-Salem, NC since 2014, The Olio is a 501c3 non-profit 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, Starter Classes, Workshops, Team-Builders, Private Parties, Group Workshops, Apprenticeships and Job Training, Retail Gallery, and a Specialty Giftware Line. As a sustainable glass studio, we recycle and melt waste glass that saves landfill space, educated about sustainability, and creates jobs in our community.
