On September 14, 2018, 10:00am-4:00pm at the Beverly Heritage Center, join us for a hands-on workshop with WV State Museum curator Jim Mitchell. Jim will explain the 29 classical types of art glass using actual objects insofar as possible. Art Glass is glass, usually colored, which is blown on a blowpipe, manipulated by glass workers and then treated with various chemical and technological processes to alter the appearance of the glass.
Jim Mitchell is the curator of the West Virginia State Museum in the Culture Center in Charleston. As a professional decorative arts and technological history curator for 58 years, he has worked for the State Museums in Wisconsin, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He has also been a museum director twice. He has a BA in History, a MA in Early American Culture, and a MS in Public Administration. Jim is a native of Wisconsin and enjoys woodworking and playing bass instruments.
