Fresh features in each Festival
The Festival of Glass is now in its eighth year and each Festival has fresh features alongside Festival favourites.
A fresh feature of the 2018 Festival is Glass Inspirations - the inaugural exhibition of glass art at The Bungalow restaurant in Drysdale. The exhibition showcases the work of local glass artists and includes hand-made sculptures, jewellery, platters, lights and vases. Every unique, hand-made piece of glass art in the exhibition is for sale.
Glass Inspirations was launched at a High Tea at The Bungalow on January 8 and will run until March. Several of the featured artists have been commissioned to create prizes in the Festival’s Treasure Hunt and so their work is on display in businesses across the North Bellarine. Several of them will also be exhibitors in the Festival Expo on February 18 at Drysdale’s Christian College.
The Bungalow is participating in the Festival’s 2018 Treasure Hunt, so while customers browse Glass Inspirations, they can keep an eagle eye open for The Bungalow’s glass ‘Tiny Treasure’ – a small glass sculpture. When you spot the ‘Tiny Treasure’, The Bungalow will stamp your Treasure Hunt form. Each form with stamps from ten participating businesses goes into a draw at the Festival Expo on February 18, with dozens of unique pieces of glass art as prizes.
Featured Festival of Glass sponsor: The Bungalow restaurant
The Bungalow is open seven days a week. Its “All Day” menu is supplemented by a special dinner menu and both are complemented by extensive beverage and wine lists. All can be viewed on the restaurant’s web site, as can information about The Bungalow’s catering service.
The restaurant is located in – what else – an early 1930s California bungalow on the corner of High Street and Eversley Street, Drysdale. The building has been refurbished extensively and, in a nice touch, the restaurant’s web sit includes a tribute and thanks to everybody who contributed to the transformation.
The Bungalow co-hosted the High Tea on January 8 that launched the 2018 Festival of Glass, is a major sponsor of the Festival’s Treasure Hunt and is holding an exhibition of glass art – Glass Inspirations - until March 2018. The Festival committee is very grateful for this support and looks forward to growing the relationship with Kerry Bell and her staff.
