Gathering with the community on social media
GatherHouse Glassblowing Studio + Gallery is my working studio where I sell functional and decorative hand-blown glass pieces as well as teach glassblowing classes to individuals of all levels. It’s a great way to get a hands-on experience of working with 2000-degree molten glass. While I’d rather meet with my students and clients in-person, leveraging social media platforms, especially throughout the pandemic, has allowed me to increase my reach, sharing my inspirations for art with a more diverse audience. Outside of using my online presence to market my products, like ornaments around the holiday, I use these tools to help build community, like when I update my followers on the glass blowing achievements of students.
