Liberty Arts Move Expands Arts Space & Resources

Open studio space

Liberty Warehouse has moved again … and again the move has allowed the collective to expand the resources they offer the Triangle arts community.  “With the move to our new, larger location we have been able to open a glass studio and offer classes at varying levels of skill, which is something we did not have the ability to provide in our prior spot. And with the larger footprint, we have more studio space available to offer artists.” say Board President, Diane Amato.

Glass studio

 

Liberty Arts offers classes in welding, glass blowing, ceramics, plasma cutting, letterpress and wood turning. Along with those classes, they have welding machines and glass blowing time available to rent by the hour. And for artists who are looking for a home, they still have a few studio spaces left.
