I share my photos with you, but these aren't yours - so be nice, don't steal them. Unless otherwise noted, these are my handiwork and you need to ask if you want to use them. So thank you for appreciating my efforts - and towing the line of civility and good manners (wink)
Uptown Glassworks in the DTR is hosting a free class to teach you how to blow glass - it's called Make Art in Renton. Iif you ever wondered if you would rock at this, now is your chance to work with the molten lavalike stuff that comes out of the glory hole - glass. As I write this - there were only 4 spots left in this rare opportunity on this Sunday, Oct. 18th. The times were 12 noon, 2:30, 4:00 and 4:30 - and there is a maximum of two people per time slot.
This is certainly a way to wet your glass blowing whistle, as a half an hour will surely not give you more than a glimpse in to this wonderful art. But what a great way to spend a portion of your weekend, while the winds cool us down and the temperatures continue to drop. Let me tell you, the glasswork's studio is always warm.
Renton is unique for having such a place to shop, let alone learn this ageless craft. Drop by regardless - they always have something new to show. Uptown Glassworks 230 Main Ave. South Renton WA 98057 (425) 228 - 1849
