SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery


January 2017
Greetings and Happy New Year,

We hope that your new year is off to a great start! Thank you to all that came to take a class, or watch a demonstration in 2016. In fact over 2,000 people came to SiNaCa to experience glass as an artistic medium! We hope to see you back this year.

We have mostly recovered from the holidays, and are quickly getting ready for our premier fundraising event, Vitro Moda, on February 18th. This will be the 9th Vitro Moda, and we are excited to have Aya Oki as our guest artist for the event. There is more information below including a call to artists.

The first Kids Connect2Glass Workshop is coming up quickly on January 14th. Its a great opportunity to get the kids involved with glass in our kiln forming studio. For information and registration click HERE.

We also have an exciting kiln forming workshop in March with visiting artist Fahan Sky McDonagh. She will be teaching Pate de Verre techniques. For information and registration click HERE.

Thank you for your continued support, we look forward to seeing you soon.

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.
