Upcoming: Glass Blowing Open House
We've watched glass blowing many, many times and actually had a chance to take a lesson at Pier Glass in Red Hook last year. If you'd like to watch the process in action, Scanlan Glass, which is at 103 14th Street (near Third Avenue), is having an open house tomorrow (12/15) and Sunday (12/16) from Noon-6PM. (Learn more about Scanlan Glass by clicking here.) An email says:
It's warm and cozy in the studio, so come - bring your lunch and hang out and watch the ancient art of glassblowing. There will be glassblowing demos (if the blowers aren't blowing don't be shy - ask them to make something fun!), refreshments, lots of beautiful handmade glass (bowls and vases, Christmas tree ornaments, etc.) for sale. Come and learn more about glassblowing (and stock up on holiday gifts, too)!Sounds like fun.
