We are pleased to announce that the Oregon Glass Guild is now the Pacific Northwest Glass Guild in recognition of our more regional focus. With our new name comes a brand new website, PNWglassguild.org.
Why join the Guild?
Keep learning new skills: The Guild has expanded its online presence with Zoom meetings, Play Days, videos, classes, and much more. In-person Play Days, classes and other learning opportunities will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
Socialize with other glass enthusiasts at Guild sponsored events: In the post-Covid days ahead we’ll continue both in-person and virtual events:
Join the Members Facebook page for glass discussions with other Members.
This year Gathering of the Guilds is virtual.
Hopefully, come this summer we can begin to have in-person events: Open Studio Tours, our member only Summer Picnic, Holiday Party, and Vendor Fair. The Vendor Fair is our Annual Meeting when we elect new officers.
We hope to add events in other regions, such as sponsoring Seattle’s GlassAndDecor.com Studio Tour. As other areas of the Northwest gather members, we are open to having events in other regions.
Show off your work: The new site has an improved Member Gallery. Members can upload photos and captions of their work in addition to their artist contact information. Together, we can reach more glass collectors, potential students and possible new members. After you join or renew you will receive an email with detailed instructions for creating your gallery and making it public.
Publicize YOUR events: We are posting member shows and classes on our events calendar and our new Facebook page. You can also join our members-only Facebook discussion group and tell people about yourself.
Participate in Gathering of the Guilds: We had 40 slots to fill, and we have just started a waiting list for the over flow. See page 3 to get on the wait list.
Even if you are registered on the OGG website, you will need to fill out your information again on the new PNWglassguild.org website. Go to the Join page and follow the instructions as if you are a new member (not as a renewal). You can pay by credit card or check. Do not click on Renew because we are all NEW members to the PNW Glass Guild website.
If you haven’t signed up in the new website, you are a new member
