The Bubble Factory

The Bubble Factory



The Bubble Factory is an independently-run glass studio in Essex, MA, offering classes, custom fabrication, hot shop rentals, and event space. For us, glass is not only a mode of artistic expression but a method for forging new connections among artists, with ancient roots and cross-cultural relevance. Our teachers work to foster a fun, inclusive, and family-friendly environment, encouraging learning and experimentation within the medium.
