Asked about the most important skills the job demands, outgoing education director Frus told the Hot Sheet “You have to have a working knowledge of all forms of glass, strong organizational abilities, and some ideas of where you want to take the program educationally in terms of the classes you want to offer and the artists you invite to teach.”
