Promoting the 2017 Treasure Hunt

1. Festival Committee gets a head ... or five!
Promotion is under way for the 2017 Festival of Glass Treasure Hunt, which is set to be bigger than its predecessor.

Committee members get a heads up!
The 2017 Treasure Hunt starts on January 2 and in a sudden outburst of creativity, members of the Festival Committee have been building glass mosaic heads which they’ll use to promote it.

Professional mosaic artists – such as the ones who’ll be at the Festival Expo – needn’t worry about new competition. The mosaic heads will be the works of inspired amateurs – the same ones who organise each year’s Festival of Glass!

Look out for the mosaic heads, which will appear in and around Drysdale & Clifton Springs in the weeks to come.

The Treasure Hunt draw will take place at the 2017 Festival of Glass Expo, at Drysdale’s Christian College on Sunday 19 February between 10.00am and 4.00pm.

2. Featured Festival sponsor – Clifton Springs & Curlewis Lions (i). Building communities through good practice
Lions Clubs aim to promote understanding, good government and good citizenship among the peoples of the world and to encourage people to serve their community.

The Festival of Glass Committee is very grateful to the Clifton Springs & Curlewis Lions Club for their support. Their work for the Festival over several years is an excellent example of service to community. They’ve been a major element of each Festival Expo, helping to set up and take down the venue and their sausage sizzle has kept visitors to the event fed and watered.

In 2016, the Clifton Springs & Curlewis Lions Club became Glass Art sponsors, launching the Bella Wein Award .... of which more another time!

  1. Nice festival out there! Will you provide this blog with pictures? Will there be handmade mosaic or this festival is about glass making?

    1. Hi Julie-Kathe
      Thanks for your interest.

      The Festival of Glass doesn't feature glass MAKING as such, but we do feature many glass working techniques - including Mosaics. Indeed, visitors to the Festival Expo will build a community mosaic during the day.

      There are lots of pictures of previous Festivals in earlier postings on this blog; and there will be lots of this year's Festival.
