Prairie Glass Studio
Our Creative Workshop in Topeka, Kansas
Prairie Glass Studio is bursting with creativity. The studio provides creative space for students and artists and a shop where fused glass gifts, home décor items, and jewelry can be purchased. Everything in the shop is handmade, by Kymm and her students working on site. The shop features sunflower-themed fused glass art – appropriate to the location near the Statehouse in downtown Topeka, Kansas.
Kymm conducts classes at the studio and occasionally teaches at Washburn University, always challenging her students to push the boundaries of their own creativity.
The studio is located on the garden level of the Historic Crane Building at 110 SE 8th Avenue. We share this enchanting building with Gizmo Pictures and Juli’s Coffee & Bistro.
Prairie Glass Studio is known
for the perfect environment to host birthday parties, staff retreats, family gatherings, etc. or just come in with a few friends and take a class.
“I love working on projects at Prairie Glass Studio because of the atmosphere. The place itself is so fun and well lit, it instantly puts you in a good mood as soon as you walk in the door. I also like the fact that there are various approaches to working with glass. For instance, I love power tools so here at the studio, the grinder and the taurus ring-saw are my best friends (after Daisy, Mia ) However, if I’m feeling a little lazy, I can just use scraps of glass to make designs out of. There are limitless ways for everyone to enjoy making their own art piece.” -Katya
“I work in the studio because it’s FUN! Being creative and volunteering helping new students is rewarding. A student sees their project completed and they are so proud, many times amazed at what they have created. What could be better?” -Cathy
“It really is a home away from home. I enjoy working with students in the studio. It's so rewarding to see their creativity blossom. It’s an awesome place to bring kids, my daughter made a science project at the studio and got an A+, has had her birthday party here and made ornaments for teachers at Christmas.” -Jara
