It’s time to turn the glass blowing furnace off for the summer! We’re celebrating with an Ice Cream Social and Walkup Workshops on July 15th from 12:00p-3:00p. This year we are excited to partner with Melt Ice Creams, who will be providing the ice cream for the event. Ice cream with all the fixings will be $5 per bowl. We will also have a limited number of hand-made glass bowls, generously donated by artists, for $40 each.
We will be doing sand casting for the Walkup Workshop. The cost will be $40 per casting. It is recommended to bring your own object that can get a little dirty (hands or feet seem to work well), and not have it larger than 5″x 5”. The casting opportunities are limited to annealer (kiln) space, and will be done on a first come, first serve basis. All created pieces will have to go through a cooling process and will be available for pick up the following Saturday.
Once the Workshops are complete we will ladle out the remaining glass from the furnace. We will attempt to smash this past year’s donation cone and reveal our new donation cone.
If you can’t make it to the social but would like to donate to help us with needed equipment updates please use the link
We have the opportunity to have funds matched up to $10,000! So any amount that you can donate will be matched.
All proceeds from the event will go toward studio improvements.
