Festival of Glass diversifies

The committee organising the 2013 Festival of Glass  intends to offer Festival visitors a greater diversity of glass-related events than it has done before.

Building on the success of the 2011 and 2012 Festivals (each attracted over 6,000 visitors), the committee is organising a series of glass-related events, including a Bottleneck Guitar Night, a Wineglass Music Lunch and the inaugural Australian Marbles Championship! Each event will be held at a local venue (e.g. a restaurant, a winery), offering local businesses a commercial stake in the Festival's success. They will join the big glass 'expo' which will, once again, be at the heart of the Festival of Glass.

If you have ideas for an event and would like to help to organise it, please contact the Festival committee c/o DCSCA (see below). If you don't have a specific suggestion but would like to help to organise an event, the Festival committee wants to hear from you!

Mid-year Festival preview
On August 8, the 2013 Festival of Glass will be previewed to potential sponsors and exhibitors and to the local media. The preview will be held at SpringDale Neighbourhood Centre in Drysdale High Street at 7.00 p.m., as part of a DCSCA public meeting. The event will feature a raffle, with prizes of glass jewellery and sculpture donated by exhibitors at the 2012 Festival. Please come along and make yourself known to on of the committee members - you'll be very welcome!
