ECU GlasStation

  • ADDRESS 3732-B Wilson Street, Farmville, NC 27828

The ECU GlasStation is a glass blowing facility located in Downtown Farmville, NC that is an extension of East Carolina University and its School of Art and Design. The GlasStation is located about 15 minutes west of ECU's main campus in Farmville as the result of a grassroots effort by The Farmville Group, a volunteer economic development association interested in growing the local economy through the arts. The Allen and Stowe families of Farmville donated a former Gulf gas station to the DeVisconti Trust. ECU leases the GlasStation building from the Trust, and have outfitted the GlasStation with equipment to create a functioning hot glass studio. The School of Art and Design in the College of Fine Arts and Communication at East Carolina University offers undergraduate and graduate ART classes for ECU students focused on glass blowing and making at the GlasStation. The ECU GlasStation features meeting and classroom space, as well as outdoor space for social gatherings and live music.
