We still manufacture our art sheet glass the same way it was made more than a century ago.

Learning about history and how to make glass in the oldest US glass factory still in activity is a great experience. I had a blast doing this visit. See the glass workers work on their daily duty was amazing. So much to learn there

We had a scheduled tour 2 years ago but I got the impression that they were more than willing to do whatever was needed. The furnace area might not be available but I'd think pretty much everything else.
