Flo Glassblowing is having a party and you're invited!

This looks like fun.  Many of the ladies from the Handmade Here show (usually at Kim's house in Westboro) will be exhibiting and selling their work.  I plan to set up my canopy outside with my wares--and this time I'll bring an extra piece of plastic in case it looks like rain, cuz as I discovered last week-end, it leaks like a sieve!

If you have never seen how glass is blown, stop by for a demonstration.  Flo offers all kinds of classes and group experiences throughout the year, so check them out if you have more than a passing interest.  More info about their studio can be found on their website www.floglassblowing.ca

Visit the New Art Festival June 15 & 16

I'm looking forward to being part of the New Art Festival, held in the lovely, spacious Central Park in the Glebe neighbourhood of Ottawa.  It's been growing over the past 20 plus years and has become quite an incredible showcase of (mostly) local art.  I finally visited for the first time a few years ago and was really impressed with the variety, and quantity, of work and really enjoyed the atmosphere of this outdoor festival.

It's being held Saturday & Sunday, June 15 & 16, rain or shine, free admission.  More details on the website www.newartfestival.ca   You can find me at 7a Patterson on the map!
