Venice comes to the Bellarine

An evening with Venetian glass master Mauro Vianello at Leura Park Estate is so popular that it has sold out weeks ahead.

At "Twilight Flames" on saturday 17 February, Mauro will work his magic, blowing and sculpting glass while talking about his home on the historic island of Murano. The event is part of the 2018 Festival of Glass, where Mauro is the Artist in Residence; and the Festival is co-hosting "Twilight Flames" with Leura Park estate.

Mauro is an internationally renowned glass master, in demand by museums, universities, research centres and galleries around the world because of his ability to create extraordinary replicas of animals and plants, especially marine life. He will run classes between 20 February and 1 March in Drysdale for beginning and experienced glass artists.

Mauro's classes will feature traditional and modern glassworking skills and techniques; and he will show how to use these techniques to create a wide variety of glass art, from beads to sculptures.

Featured Festival sponsors: During his time in Drysdale, Mauro will stay at a local rental property owned and operated by Shane and Lorraine Cole; the Festival committee is grateful to Shane and Lorraine for supporting the Festival in this way.
