Requesting $10,000 to build a mobile flameworking studio

From Jessi Wheeler

I am a glassblower/flameworker and am trying to build a mobile flameworking studio and gallery. I cannot work in my apartment and plan to travel to different locations along the US teaching flameworking classes.

More Info

Well hello there!

I am a glassblower/flameworker and have been working with glass for the last few years. In that time, I have developed a reputation for having standout glass character designs and speedy turnaround for wholesale and retail orders. Previously, I worked out of my home studio but I have since moved out of state for my husband's work. Because we are now renting, I cannot have a studio and there are no renters where I live willing to let me set up shop.

This is where you're amazing generosity may come in. I am raising funds to build a mobile glassblowing/flameworking studio. This studio will not only house all of the equipment necessary to make glass sculptures, but also will house a small gallery to show allow potential clients to view, in real time, what their finished products will look like. There will be at least 3 workstations, so that I can teach classes while traveling and at shows. Essentially, this studio will be used to travel to different locations and schools to not only make and sell glassworks, but also to teach those that wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity. 

At this time, I am only asking for $10,000 that will be used to build the studio, buy torches and kilns for the workstations. 

Please help me reach my goal and thank you so much for even considering it and reading my plea. I hope you have a wonderfully, generous day!
