Pride of Southside Homebrew Invitational
The annual Pride of Southside Homebrew Invitational is held in partnership with HopFusion and other neighborhood breweries to celebrate the best in local brewing, and help raise funds for our programing. There will be hand blow beer mugs and event t-shirts for sale. While enjoying your beer hang out and watch glass blowing demos.
Vitro Moda is our way of uniting exciting creations of glass (Vitro) with the high energy of fashion (Moda) into this most unique glass art fundraising experience. This event allows us to transform a local venue into a New York style fashion art runway. We kick off with a silent auction of unique glass art pieces, donated by generous participating artists. Followed by the surprises of a Glass Art Wall Pull – where donors select a surprise boxed piece and then walk the runway to share the view of their glass art prize. Next, couture models walk the catwalk with the best of glass art created by glass artisans from all over the United States. Culminating the night with the sale of the runway show’s featured art pieces. Throughout this upbeat event are great food, libations, great music and a true focus on glass art, SiNaCa Studios, and the potential it has to enhance community.
Ice Cream Social
The middle of each July we turn off the glass blowing furnace for annual studio maintenance and celebrate with an Ice Cream Social fundraiser. We hold sand casting workshops for people to participate in as they enjoy ice cream. Local artists donate glass bowls that are sold at the social. At the end of the sand castings we ladle out the remaining molten glass in to kegs full of water that will be remelted when we relight the furnace. Proceeds from the event go directly to studio maintenance.
