Berlin Glas became a registered association on 31 August 2009, and in 2010, we received non-profit status from the City of Berlin, with a special note from the department head of the registry congratulating us!
This was in part because our main objective as a non-profit is to create a platform, where young people can have access to this extraordinary art form – for free!
Over the years, we have created programmes that help expand this endeavour, and we now have 3 that involve both glassblowing and glass fusing. The kids we work with range from teenagers to children as young as 5 years old. We have an internship programme that allows kids who have been through one of the workshops to carry on helping us organise subsequent classes for youths; and most recently, we created colouring books that are free for downloading. Have a look at our Colouring Book page and have fun!
