Why we're unique!

At the MakerLodge Glass Workers Club, we expose you the introductory level glass making skills [bead making, figurines, etc].  We're a community of students and staff that love to make cool things in glass.  Our goal is to learn, and share, skills for lamp work... a type of glass making used to make smaller glass items.  We are not affiliated with the MIT Glass Lab (glass making of larger, more complex pieces) and our Mobius credentials don't apply there, but share their passion for working in glass.
