SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery

July 2018

As the temperature gets warmer, we get closer to giving the glass blowing studio a rest for the summer. Make plans to join us for our annual Ice Cream Social fundraiser on July 14th. Money that we raise will go to help with studio improvements. We will have sandcasting workshops and awesome ice cream from Melt Ice Creams. We also have a challenge grant. If we raise $15K we have an opportunity to have it matched! We have already raised $10K. Help us meet our goal!

Registration is still open for our youth summer programs. We offer full and half day camp opportunities. Please see below for more details and links to the classes.

For Open Studio Night we created the new donation cone for next year. The final reveal will be at the Ice Cream Social. Images from the evening can be seen HERE.

Our fundamentals based glass blowing class is back starting in September. We have made some changes to it going from a 6 week class to a 4 week class. We will be adding workshops focusing on specific skills to help improve working with glass. The link to the new 4 week class can be found HERE.

We have new flame working curriculum classes finalized for both soft and borosilicate glass. Each of the classes are four weeks long, and are focused on creating solid fundamental skills. For more information use the following links. Borosilicate 1 and Bead Making 101.

 We look forward to seeing you soon!

SiNaCa Staff  
Join us the second Friday of each month from 6p-9p as we host an open studio night at SiNaCa. This is your chance to find out more about the "magic" that goes in to creating glass art. As the artist creates their work we give you an interactive play by play, so you can understand better  why they do what they do. Our on site gallery showcases our featured artist to give you a close up view of what they create. Its also the perfect time to find out how you can get involved in learning how to work with glass.
Glass Classes 
SiNaCa Studios offers a variety of ever evolving hot and warm glass programs.  We offer short term classes ranging from 20 minutes to 3 hours in our hot shop (glass blowing studio), kiln forming studio and flame working studio. If you want a more in depth learning opportunity we have 6 week extended programs in the hot shop, and 3 week extended programs in kiln forming that give you a greater understanding of the different ways to manipulate glass.
