Congratulations to Kim Savoie and Rebecca Potash, Founders of Celadon Glassworks, for being the WomensNet $10,000 October Business Specific Grant recipient in the category of  “Creative Arts”.

Celadon Glassworks is a start-up, public access glassblowing school in Southern Massachusetts.  The school will help students at all levels of skill and knowledge.


From the reality TV show, “Blown Away,” to the United Nations designating 2022 as the International Year of Glass, interest in glassblowing has never been higher. And with their 30 years of combined experience, Kim and Rebecca will spread the love and skill of glassblowing to their community.
Kim told us, “This grant will jump start glass education in our area. And with our research into class interest, we know that the school will be huge success.
