We are pleased to introduce Rhody Gem, a new monthly column in Providence Monthly. We’re always being thanked for spotlighting the “hidden gems” of the state, and in our ongoing efforts to leave no stone unturned, we’re putting the call out to our readership! Each month we’ll spotlight a Rhody Gem: a business, artisan, or place suggested to us by our faithful readers.
What it is:
Gather Glass is a workshop that offers people the chance to try glass blowing in a safe and fun environment. Students learn from master glass blowers how to make objects such as drinking glasses, ornaments, paperweights, pumpkins, bowls, and more.
Where to find it:
Just past the restaurants on Federal Hill and less than a mile from downtown, at 521 Atwells Avenue in The Valley Arts District. Neighbors include art organizations like The Steel Yard, WaterFire Arts Center, Ajay Land, The Wurks, and Nicholson File Studios, among others.
What makes it a Rhody Gem?
Making a drinking glass is a can’t miss experience. Whether you’re looking for something interesting to do when the family comes to town, a date night, group outing or school vacation, a visit to Gather is a memorable way to spend your time.
