Play Day: Photographing Your Work, Sunday June 12th, 12:30pm

In Seattle (hopefully also on Zoom: see event listing)

It’s hard to get around to photographing your recent work but in this age of everything-on-line it’s more important then ever to keep up.

Bring a camera or cell phone and some of your glass over to Karen Seymour‘s (near the Zoo in Seattle) and we’ll make an afternoon of it. If you’re an experienced photographer with proper lights and tents, think about bringing them along to help those who haven’t quite gotten there.

Play Days are member only events: Please Join the Guild before attending


Volunteer Opportunities:

There are many spots in the organization where we’d love some help. Some take only a few minutes a week, some are an hour or two a month: join one of the teams tying the glass community together.

Right now we especially need a volunteer to do the back-end WordPress core and plug-in updates. See the Idealist ad.
