Classes and Schedule Update The new furnace is going to be
installed during the end of August. There are no new classes
scheduled between now and then. We have planned our September
classes; they are posted on our  classes page, and you can use 
the online 'Class Registration' feature to sign up for any of 
the new classes. Over the next few weeks, we will schedule 
classes through the end of the year.

Elio is Returning February 2009 Elio Quarisa is a Muranese Primo
Maestro and a good friend of ours. Maestro Quarisa started
working at Barovier & Toso in Murano in 1949. Since, he's
collaborated with many of the great designers and worked at a
number of the top furnaces. 

Elio is scheduled to teach a three day intensive workshop Feb.
8th - 11th 2009. We will send out more information as we figure
things out, but we wanted to give as much notice as possible so
you can reserve the dates on your calendar. Drop us an email if
you are interested.

We Need Your Help - Spread the Word East Falls Glassworks 
depends on referrals for most of our business. Tell your friends 
about us; link to us from your website. Spread the word!

Thanks to all our renters, class participants, visitors and to
everyone who has helped to make the Philadelphia glass community
as vibrant as it is today! We only exist because of you.
