Monadnock Glass Arts was shaped under the finely wrought fingertips of owner and flameworker Eric Duyette, who breathes more than a decade of experience into every blown sculpture, vase, and bulb.

Two torch workstations dominate the intimate studio environment where Duyette instructs with an emphasis on safety and proper ventilation and equipment use. Classes are available Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., as well as Monday–Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Weekend hours are subject to availability. Students should arrive sporting appropriate clothing and unbuttered fingers.
