GAS Conference 2011 Eco-efficient Studios

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

The green panel has become a permanent fixture at the Annual Glass Art Society Conference. Last year’s topic: Using Glass Studio as an Energy Source can be found in our chat forum for discussions on use of thermal cascades and utilizing waste heat in a hot shop for other purposes.

This year: the topic was community access studios. They benefit us all because we share resources, utilities, building material and equipment costs. Do you belong to a community access studio or do you own your hotshop? What are the benefits? Post your comments here.
