Welcome to GlassRoots Virtual Studios! We are determined to stay connected to each other and to each of you... while we're physically distancing, we're staying socially connected.
Each week our programs will include live demos, lectures, challenges, movie nights, even special product sales -- we have some great surprises in store!
We encourage everyone to join in; educators are invited to share our schedule with their students. Each Sunday we'll send out our e-newsletter containing the full week's schedule. Join us on social media for reminders and more information (see links at the bottom of this page).
