That’s right, October marks one year of Mountain Grass being up and running!
We spent quite a bit of time trying to decide the best way to commemorate our first year of sharing our love of functional glass with Kimberley, BC, and we finally figured it out! After almost an entire year of operation, we reflected on what we thought our customers would like, and we just kept returning to the same spot – glassblowing.
With no exception, the most common thing we get asked about is glassblowing – where can someone do it, where can they watch, if they want to try their hand at it where can they go? Well, if you’re in Kimberley, from October 17 – 27, 2020, you won’t have to go anywhere!
We’ve decided the best way to celebrate a year of selling functional glass is to bring the magical art of glassblowing right here to Kimberley! So we teamed up with our good friends at Glass House Xperience to make it happen!
Glass House Xperience is a unique mobile glassblowing studio, the only one of its kind in Canada. They travel across Western Canada teaching workshops and sharing the exciting art of glassblowing.
Glass House Xperience will be joining us at Mountain Grass October 17 – 27, 2020, parked in our back lot, behind 349 Spokane Street. During their time in Kimberley, they will be offering short ‘Taste of Glass‘ classes, which give participants the opportunity to try their hand at making a cup or paperweight, and there are also Water Pipe classes. In this longer offering, participants will be able to make their own functional water pipe.
Kids can get in on the action too, with shorter classes, perfect for your little person to try making an ornament!
You can register for classes online, or come by Mountain Grass to sign up in store!
Don’t wait too long – this is going to be a popular event and classes will sell out! Register today, or come by Mountain Grass for more info!
