Mission Statement

Public Glass is a nonprofit arts organization that is committed to providing access to the resources needed to make explorations in glass a possibility for everyone.

Our mission is designed to break down barriers and connect people through education and entertainment. Bridging Bay Area communities ensures a new generation of residents are invested in the creative culture that San Francisco is known for. 


Our Story

Since 1996, Public Glass has been San Francisco's only public access glass studio and school. We started as a small, underfunded arts studio and have continued to grow and learn each year. We still rely on volunteers, donors, and community engagement today. Glass is a communal art form, and we are always looking for ways to honor and grow our community.

  As a 501(c)3 arts organization located in the Bayview/Hunters Point neighborhood of San Francisco, our outreach includes a full curriculum of glass courses taught by local and nationally recognized artists, as well as programming for under served youth and adults, corporate group experiences, events, and exhibitions.
