4th Annual SPARC Holiday Party and Kiln Glass Workshop
December 4 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree – $20
The public is invited to the South Pasadena Arts Council’s 4th annual “SPARC Holiday Party and Kiln Glass Workshop,” at Bullseye Glass Co. and Judson Studios in South Pasadena on Wednesday, December 4, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Celebrate the beginning of the winter holidays with SPARC’s evening of music, refreshments, a raffle, and interactive creative fun, and gift shopping at Artisan’s Corner, an eclectic collection of local handmade items. All festivities are free except for the Kiln-Glass Workshop, which requires pre-registration and a $20 fee. Workshop ticket-holders will be able to design and craft a pair of “holiday dazzlers” at Bullseye Glass Co., a leading resource for glass fusing supplies and classes for artists and artisans of all experience levels. Glass materials in a variety of colors and shapes are provided; your creations will be fired by Bullseye and available for pick-up following the event.
All partygoers may tour adjacent Judson Studios, the nationally renowned fine art glass company specializing in architectural, leaded and stained glass. South Pasadena-based artist Anne-Elizabeth Sobieski will be on hand to speak about her designs for a series of fused-glass windows, commissioned by the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture and fabricated by Judson for a new fire station in Santa Clarita.
This year’s Artisan’s Corner, offering unique gifts for purchase, features Judson Studio and Bullseye Glass artists, jewelry designer Melissa Finstead, one-of-a-kind art dolls designed by Christy Kane, whimsical ceramic sculptures by Stef Choi, JASSRA Handmade items by Elisa, WATO Soap (organic soaps and skincare products), Kiser Originals metal sculptures, Bella Classic Photos, and works by a trio of artists: Blue Trimarchi (kazoos handmade from exotic woods), Val Trimarchi (watercolor art and meditative book, “Breathe”), and Ella Trimarchi (handmade zippered purses).
