Glass Shack Studio

The sunlight streaming through Glass Shack Studio's second-story windows sets shards of stained glass ablaze in a rainbow of hues, sending glints of colored light dancing across crafting tables. Shaped by specialized cutting tools and anchored by grout, these glass pieces will eventually form colorful mosaics like those displayed on the studio's chartreuse walls, which double as a gallery for local artisans. During workshops and classes, owner and founder Haley Alcock calls on her background in elementary and middle-school education to swiftly explicate the nearly 3,500-year-old art form, teaching students to assemble glittering landscapes, abstract designs, and portraits of their favorite light bulbs.
