The Festival has been the brainchild of the Drysdale & Clifton Springs Comunity Association Inc. who had been exploring the possibility of creating a Festival for both townships. It did not take long for the idea of the Festival of Glass to gather some momentum and sub-committee was formed to investigate the viability of such a project.
The sub-committee is headed by the Association President, Doug Carson, along with 2 local glass artists in Betty O'Driscoll and Michelle Payne. Anne Brackley, Lyn Ingles, Mercedes Drummond and Roger Lavingdale make up the rest of the team who are bringing the Festival to the Potato Shed in Drysdale in February 2011.
The Potato Shed is a vibrant arts centre situated 2 km's from the centre of Drysdale and has a large theatre, plus several rooms available for display purposes. An ideal location for a Festival as there is plenty of parking, a lovely rural outlook and plenty of outside display areas if we need them.
