ABOUT 3 RIVERS GLASS BEADMAKERS
Founded in 2001, 3RGB's goal is to make involvement and participation in our group educationally informative and fun to anyone with an active interest in flameworked glass beadmaking and other related areas of glass torch and kiln work. Membership is open whether you are an experienced craftsperson or newly pursuing glass lamp/kiln work as a trade or artistic expression.

THE GROUP DYNAMIC
3RGB is a lively and amiable group. They make it a point to organize and plan events such as organized group shows and open torch weekends with the intent to create an active glass 
beadmaking community. We also enjoy convening with related artists and craftsmen. 

GLASS BEADMAKING IN SOUTHWEST PENNSYLVANIA
We provide an organized network of people who can share knowledge and provide information on contemporary glass art for adornment. By providing an organized network of people who can share knowledge and provide information on contemporary glass 
beadmaking, the 3RGBs nurture and enrich each member’s artistic endeavors.
 
GLASS BEADMAKING AND GLASS FOR ADORNMENT
Additionally, the 3RGB group brings an increased awareness of the artistic value of glass beads and the skill of glass 
beadmaking as a contemporary, fine craft and artistic medium to the area of southwestern Pennsylvania.
