The 2017 Webinar Project- January

Tue, Feb 21 2017 9:37 am Jenn Langill Comments

 Many of us start the new year with goals and resolutions. My goal this year was to expand my skill set behind the torch. My name is Jenn Langill, I have been a hobbyist on the torch for 9 years, 2 of those years were spent in the Scientific Glass Technology Program at Salem Community College. I am currently the Education Coordinator for Glasscraft. All those awesome classes and webinars Glasscraft offers, I help make those happen. I spend a lot of time behind a desk.In fact, in 2016 I was behind a torch 3 times. Crazy, huh? So this year, I decided to take advantage of all the webinars that Glasscraft offers. My goal was 1 webinar per month and at least 3 torch sessions working on what I learned. Then I thought, what if I worked with a group of people doing the same thing? So, the 2017 Webinar Project was born.
