SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery

November 2017

It was a fast October with two of our biggest events of the year. ArtsGoggle was tremendous, with thousands of people coming to the Near Southside to take in art from hundreds of artists. We had our annual students sale and pumpkin patch. The glass blowing demos were done by students from UT Arlington's glass department. View images from the event HERE.

The Pride of Southside Homebrew Invitational was our other October event. This was the third year for POSHI, and was presented in partnership by the amazing folks at HopFusion Ale Works. The Loop - Artist Rehearsal Space provided amazing music while we sampled some outstanding homebrews. This year POSHI was an official North Texas Beer Week event. The BJCP competition was won by Clifton Ellis. He gets to brew his winning beer at HopFusion. The Best in Show winner, as voted by the attendees was Strange Union Brewery. Congratulations! Images from the event can be seen HERE.

As we get closer to the holiday season we will be offering scheduled ornament workshops in our kiln forming and glass blowing studios. Kiln Forming Glass Blowing

There will also be kids half day camps offered towards the end of December. They will be held in the kiln forming and flame working studios. Day Camps

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.

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.
