September 11 and 12:
Glass Blowing Workshops and Demonstrations
As a precursor to the annual ArtFEST in downtown Columbus, Lisa Pelo and her crew from Hot Blown Glass Studio will lead workshops on Fri and Sat, Sept 11 and 12, for registered participants to create glass paperweights.
The workshops begin Friday afternoon, on Washington Street between 3rd and 4th streets in downtown Columbus. On Saturday, Pelo, who has been recognized by the State for her exceptional glasswork by being named an Indiana Artisan, will continue the glass blowing workshops in conjunction with ArtFEST, a popular annual art festival that this year is Sat and Sun, Sept 12 and 13, featuring the work of local and regional fine artists and artisans.
Glass workshop registration starts Mon, Aug 24. The $25 cost covers all materials and time for this family-friendly session, and reservations can be made by calling the Columbus Arts Council at (812) 376-2539.
