Dakota Glass Works Visiting Artist: Dean Smiley

Join us Saturday, April 22nd, from 10AM – 4PM to be a part of our FIRST EVER Visiting Artist Demonstration and LIVE Q+A!
Our NEW Visiting Artist Program allows us to expose our Junior Crew Glassblowing Students and our community to different glassblowing techniques + styles that are unique to each skilled artist.
Our first Visiting Artist Demonstration is with Dean Smiley, a glass artist with over thirty years of experience. Originally from Alberta, Canada, Dean has traveled extensively, searching for the secrets of the glass world. We are so happy to welcome him back for his second visit to spend time with Byron and our Junior Crew.
What to expect:
→ LIVE Glassblowing Demonstration with Q+A during the action
→ Unique blown and sculpted glasswork from Byron + Dean available for purchase
→ More information about Dakota Glass Works and our Mission
You don’t want to miss out on this FREE opportunity to chat with Dean Smiley and our Dakota Glass Works Crew while they show you how it’s done at the hottest shop in Wardensville.
Parking is available behind the studio and across the road in the BARRS Market parking lot. Please be advised that we don’t have public restrooms.
Make this a full-day, fun, family outing by checking out the Wardensville Garden Market’s Earth Day Farm Fest happening the same day from 10AM – 3PM!
