Hot Glass Cold Beer Pairs Beer Tasting With Glassblowing October 29th

24 Oct

hotglasscoldbeerYou are invited to a Hot, Haunted & Hoppy Halloween event being held at the Terminal City Glass Co-Op.  Terminal City Glass Co-op is Canada’s first and only nonprofit glass arts co-op. They offer courses in glassblowing, flameworking, beadmaking and sandblasting to everyone and provide access to glassmaking equipment as well as resources for the development of emerging and established glass artists.  The event on October 29th is a fundraiser to help support the community building activities at the Co-op which includes artist slide shows, open houses and other events that promote glass as an art form.  Artists will demonstrate how to create pumpkins from molten glass, and will also blow glass into an actual hollowed-out pumpkin and create a fire-breathing glass jack-o-lantern. The event happens at their studios located at 1191 Parker Street on Saturday, October 29th from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.  They will  be hosting a glassblowing workshop and a beer tasting which we presume will go in that order, or well things could get a little dangerous, just saying. The beer tasting portion of the event will feature 9 local breweries including Bomber, Callister, Faculty, Postmark, Powell Street, Steel & Oak, Steamworks, Storm and Strange Fellows.   Tickets for these evening of art, fun and beer are $55 with tickets available online from TerminalCityGlass.com.
