Southern New Jersey has a rich heritage of glass making. The Dougherty family has been involved in the glass industry for four generations and is now a manufacturer of lampworking torches, and supplies the glass industry with machined parts.
Under the direction of Mary Dougherty and Frank Dougherty III, The Carlisle School of Glass Art was created giving artists of all ages the opportunity to learn and hone their skills under the instruction of many well-known and talented lampworking artists.
The 2400 square foot facility was completely designed and built on site with a state of the art ventilation system. Each student is outfitted with an all stainless steel workstation, individual overhead lighting and choice of Carlisle torch along with all the necessary tools to give the student an excellent environment to learn flameworking arts.
Classes range from 2-hour torch orientations for beginners to week long workshops in all levels of flameworking,
