About us

Empowered by a knowledgeable teaching staff our goal at Red Stone Glen is to inspire and guide students to develop their skills at the highest level while relaxing in a serene and welcoming atmosphere.

Born out of 46 years of combined teaching experience, Tom Knisely and his daughter Sara Bixler sought out to create a space where students come to learn, find kinship in each other and relax in a studio that feels as much like home as their own. In addition to the extensive knowledge that Tom and Sara have within the fiber arts, students will often have an opportunity to study along side regionally, nationally and internationally recognized teachers. Our teaching staff strives to give their students the most comprehensive and enriching experience possible when studying at Red Stone Glen Fiber Arts Center.

The entire Knisely and Bixler family take pride in the natural beauty of Red Stone Glen. With the bounty all around them you will find the family gardening, cooking, wine making and preserving for the winter. These passions often influence our work and connect us to our students.
