Hot Sand Casting Party
And now for a completely different Saturday date night!
Time & Location
Sep 30, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Sand City, 801 b, California Ave, Sand City, CA 93955, USA
About The Event
Join us for a special event. Tell your friends, tell your family, and join us to hang out together in our hot glass studio, enjoying appetizers and beverages while socializing and making art in a medium you've likely never tried before...cast molten glass!
Party participants will, with the assistance of Monterey GlassWorks artists, over 3 hours, create glass sculpture pieces. Pre-shaped forms are pressed into casting sand, then molten glass from our furnace is gathered and ladled into sand forms. Each party participant can bring objects to press into the sand to form glass sculptures.
Don't worry, you don't have to be a professional sculptor to enjoy it. We'll have plenty of shapes for you to choose from, or you can bring your own, (or use your hand, face or feet!) The purpose is to have fun making art with friends in a way few ever get to do.
We will have appetizers, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages available for guests and the entire studio (including gallery) will be open to attendees.
Attendance is capped at 30 persons.
