Glass Art Instructor

Arin Ashley

Arin is a neurodivergent Queer Philadelphia-based artist, educator, care-giver, and parent. Their body of work has been and continues to be firmly grounded in healing intergenerational trauma. While Arin’s artistic practice is centered in glassmaking, their work is also informed by the Folk arts and the ‘work with what you have’ approach of their Appalachian Kentucky roots.
