We have been looking in our area to possibly move our studio into a new location, outside of the house. So far we have found three locations that interest us; Concord, Nashua, and Wilton. Concord however is a fifty minute ride each way so that is our last choice at the moment. Our favorite would be the artist mills in Wilton.
We want to move our studio so the public can wander into the studio, watch us work, also maybe have a little gallery section. Hopefully eventually set up some extra torches and teach some beginner classes, both soft glass and borosilicate. We would also try to stock up on some supplies so we can sell starter packs, tools, and supplies to people locally. If it picks up then we would try to order more in bulk so we can start to sell supplies online too again.
At the beginning we would probably just do private lessons since we already have the second torch and extra tools :)
We are going to contact a few local places to see if they would be interested in having me teach a beginning boro class sometime soon since there has been a lot of people asking lately. Not completely sure what subject I would teach yet, I enjoy off mandrel work the most so that would be my first choice :)
