Priests Mill Glassworks seeks a partner, or partners to help achieve its vision of providing a supportive environment for all Glass Arts in Eastern Ontario, Canada
The Glassworks is located in the historic limestone gristmill structure, overlooking the millpond and waterfall in Alexandria Ontario. The studio/gallery occupies the street level with a storage/workshop on the second floor (~1400 sq.ft. each).
