Wouldn't it be great to rent a copy of Essential Boro Beadmaking or Rudi Gritsch's Kiln Formed Glass the next time you swing by the local Blockbuster to rent the latest episode of Lost?
Even Netflix – who likes to boast that they stock over 55,000 video titles – doesn't carry niche instructional videos.
Well thank you Cynthia Oliver for Friday's post on Warmglass.com that provided the link to Technical Video Rental (TVR) – an online video rental company specializing on "how to" DVDs.
Founded in 2003 by Travis Corcoran, TVR currently offers a library of over 1,200 titles on everything from woodworking to parenting to arts and crafts and more. Most rent for about $10 for a week.
The glass category currently offers 64 titles. The majority are for flameworkers though stained glass, kiln-glass, and other glass artists will all find something of interest on TVR's virtual shelves.
