Glass blower sharing experience in Elora

The Elora Arts Council is presenting Neil Hanscomb to speak about his life and experience in the world of glass.

He’ll be presenting at the Elora Library community room on March 12 at 2pm.

Hanscomb’s strengths lie both in his own innovative contemporary design and his respect for heritage stained glass and its preservation, officials state.

His work can be found in private, public, commercial and ecclesiastical spaces throughout Ontario and beyond. Hanscomb Glass Studio was established in 1983 and has since emerged as specialized craft, boasting quality and individualism, say officials.  

The space is a cornerstone in Elora and all work is created in the studio, truly an authentic workspace at its finest where true masters of the craft design and create, organizers state.  

Hanscomb’s partner in life and art is Gisela Ruehe.

While they create they remain committed to the environment and the integrity of their materials.  Learn more about their journey and their passion for what they do. Tickets for Hanscomb’s presentation are $10 and can be purchased at the door.
