Building Our Future

We consider long-term solutions that focus on sustainability, durability and quality as crucially important to combat the race for short-term gains and planned obsolescence through more plastic and landfill. We also recognize the power of dedication to craft, and want to be champions of that culture. We seek those who have the desire to learn alongside their peers and celebrate each other’s success. That’s why it’s our mission to educate others through our School of Window Craft and create an Artisan Army to handle the need of our communities.
