Launch of 'The Glass Trail'

On Friday 4 July, Roger Grant, Executive Director of Tourism Geelong and Bellarine, will launch The Glass Trail – a unique venture linking twelve glass artists, craftspeople and businesses in the Geelong area in a ‘trail’ for locals and visitors to follow.

People who follow The Glass Trail will see a wide variety of glass goods, including jewellery, sculpture and household items, most of them hand-made locally. They can learn something about how these items are made and may see demonstrations of glass workers’ various intricate techniques.

Followers of The Glass Trail will also be introduced to the annual Festival of Glass, including its competition for the Drysdale Glass Art Awards. The Glass Trail has been created by the Festival of Glass, to further its aim of promoting the Geelong area as a centre of glass activity. The Festival of Glass – now in its fifth year – is an initiative of the Drysdale & Clifton Springs Community Association (DCSCA).

The Glass Trail is completely self-funded by its twelve participants; the Festival has co-ordinated the creation of The Glass Trail brochure and is promoting and publicising it.

To see the brochure online, go to the Festival of Glass web site (www.festivalofglass.net.au)

DATE & TIME:    4 July 2014, 6.00 – 7.00pm
VENUE:      Totally Shattered Glass Studio,
1480 Queenscliff/Portarlington Road, Point Lonsdale 3225.
