July News

The heat has set in making it incredibly hot in the glass blowing studio. This makes it much easier to turn off the glass blowing furnace for the next 2 months. Before we do that we do have two more hot shop events. The 1st will be our July Open Studio Night on the 9th. We will follow that the next day with our annual, this one is our 10th, Ice Cream Social. We will have sand casting workshops, awesome ice cream thanks to Melt Ice Creams, and art glass bowls for purchase. See below for more information and a link for registration for the event. After things have cooled down we will start our needed annual maintenance. Proceeds from the Ice Cream Social go directly to help fund needed maintenance and repairs.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Ice Cream Social

Support the arts and community at SiNaCa Studios’ 10th annual Ice Cream Social! Cool off for the summer while we cool down our furnace and empty it of molten glass to create your own one-of-a-kind glass sand casted keepsake. Enjoy Melt ice cream, select a glass bowl crafted by SiNaCa’s own local artists, and check out our pop-up fine art bowl boutique.Join us for this family friendly community fundraising event in the Near Southside Arts cultural district. Proceeds benefit SiNaCa Studios by servicing our furnace with needed upgrades and helping us maintain our historic building on Magnolia Avenue.

Special thank you to our sponsors- Melt Ice Creams and TNT Unique Finds!
