A Frisco glassblowing studio; The Gatherhouse

Jul 16, 2007 | 4 Comment

The Gatherhouse is a glass blowing studio in Frisco, Colorado.  Run by John Hudnut and his wife Kate, they have demonstrations and classes on a regular basis. Gatherhouse glass

 You can watch as John makes vases, tumblers, lighting or bowls, every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 7pm or by appointment.  It is  a popular place, especially during the summer as John and his assistants transform 2000 degree molten glass into beautiful pieces of art.  It is fascinating to watch for all ages.  It amazes me that glass of this quality can be made by hand.  We get so used to things being done by machines that it is nice to see someone who is truly skilled in an artform making such beautiful things.Gatherhouse glass studio in Frisco, Colorado

If you would rather have hands on experience, they offer classes with one-on-one instruction during  the 3 hour session.  Imagine giving  Mom or Grandma a vase you made yourself!  The classes are a great gift for couples, friends, or as a client gift.  The price is $125 per student, including the cost of materials.  Gift certificates are also available. 


Their location  has just changed and you can now  find them more easily  at 110 2nd Avenue in Frisco.   Or, find them on the web at www.gatherhouse.com.The Gatherhouse sign




John and Kate will be displaying and selling  their artwork at the Mountain Art Gathering, a benefit for the Summit Foundation, July 27-30 in Keystone.  They will also be at the Vail Arts Festival August 10th to 12th.  Their glass can be found at the Arts Alive Gallery in Breckenridge, Porteria Designs in Breckenridge, Culture Clash in Salida, Colorado, The Evergreen Gallery, Evergreen, Colorado, Gallery Gustave in Denver, Colorado and Exhibit 51 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  It is also available at the Gatherhouse itself.

    Thank you, Joanne for the thoughtful article. I just wanted to clarify one thing. We will not be showing at the Beaver Creek Arts Festival this year. We will, however, be at the Vail Arts Festival (http://www.vailartsfestival.com) in Lionshead from August 10 – 12, 2007.

  2. I made the edit Kate, thanks for the correction!

    I am visiting September 22-Oct. 4. Will there still be demonstrations on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday and opportunities to take a class?
