September Community Day

We can't believe it's September already! We've been busily preparing for our first annual event: Seattle PipeMasters Collab and we are looking forward to a day of kicking back, relaxing, and ... blowing some glass. 

So listen up, we hold Community Day every 2nd Saturday of the month from 12-6pm. It's FREE and open to anyone 18+, no matter your skill level. We offer safety lessons & demonstrations for beginners before they hop on a torch. Nate Dizzle, EBZ, and other glassblowers will be giving demos throughout the day. If you have been curious about torch work, now is your chance to satisfy your craving.

Community Day is our way of giving back to our very supportive community, so we hope that you can join us for this fun day and also keep supporting our school & studio by taking some classes or renting some torch time. This is our NINTH month of business, and our 9th Community Day.
