Pacific NW Glass Events, Past & Future

| 0

Past events:

The Sgraffito Powder Challenge discussed at the June General Meeting is ongoing. We’ll have a full report in the September Issue.

Please send us photos of your glass events:

Having a photo makes it so much easier to invite people to participate in an event next year. If you are part of or go to a glass event please take some photos and send the best 2 to the publicity team (400 to 600 px or “medium” resolution, about 500 KB, not more than 1MB if you can help it).

Future Events

General meetings in 2024 are via Zoom, usually on the 4th Sunday of most months, at 3:30 pm (not April, July, August, or December).

Contact our VPs if you have suggestions for future topics. You don’t need to be a member to attend our General Meetings but we would love to have you join. Videos of many meetings are available to members by choosing Glass>Education from the menu.

Looking Ahead to Fall: Volunteers needed NOW

(our glass events don’t happen spontaneously: it takes organizing and prep. Give a little time and energy, get a lot more fun, glass info and sense of community.)

The PNW Glass Guild’s September Open Studios in the Portland/Vancouver area is looking for a new volunteer to lead it: Linda Gerrard has been doing it many years and wants someone to shadow her this year so they can take it on next year. The event will be September 14-15. Contact Linda for more info.

Portland/Vancouver area Vendor Fair Team is looking for a volunteer to start organizing now for next year. Contact Stephanie Johnston, sponsorship team lead.

Refract is celebrating glass in Seattle October 17-20: The Guild is sponsoring the Studio Tour Oct. 19-20 as part of larger glass celebration. Contact Karen Seymour about hosting a site if your home/studio is north of the ship canal and south of the city limits. Also contact her if you would like to volunteer to organize carpooling from your town to come to Refract. Refract has over 50 venues presenting glass of all types. It is mostly free or the normal cost of museum entry.
