Washington Glass School’s 9th anniversary party was a great event! Hundreds joined the artists and instructors celebrate – the event started with a parade complete with marching bands and the Mayor of Mount Rainier – Melinda Miles – greeting everyone.
The open house was lots of fun – the artists showcased their work, torchwork demos were held, with a collaborative artwork piece was made by the lampworkers during the day.
