FoG on the road!

The Festival of Glass has been on the road as part of the nation-wide 'RUOK?' day.

The occasion was the 'YouthFest' day held on 15 September at Bellarine Secondary College in Drysdale. The Festival of Glass was invited to attend because one the aims of the day was to introduce young people to some of the community events and organisations in their area. Members of the Festival Committee spent the first hour erecting a small market tent! After that, however, they spent several hours talking to young people about ... well ... glass!

People were fascinated by demonstrations of mosaic-making and bead-weaving and some local teachers said that they would promote the competition for schools that is an innovation of the 2012 Festival of Glass.
