Publication Date: 2006
Using a slide show presentation, Mary Cheek Mills provides The Corning Museum of Glass’s docents with information needed to conduct successful tours of the facility. She first discusses the layout of the museum, then goes into more detail regarding the origins of glassmaking, and several glassblowing techniques. A good instructional video.
