Holiday Sale Days 2011
Today, Thursday December 1st we open for our Holiday Sale. We'll be celebrating 37 years in business through Sunday December 4th with demonstrations of glass making and refreshments in the gallery. A large selection of ornaments and smaller things this year awaits your shopping list. We'll be offering 20% off all in studio made pieces.
Benicia artisans don't do a Holiday Open House; so it's rare to have Open Studios in December. Bring your out of town friends to see the glass blowers show how it's made here along the historic waterfront in Benicia, California. The Bay Area's glass makers to the Pope and US Presidents will also be giving glass blowing classes. You can register for a one day workshop December 17th on the Walnut Creek Civic Arts website: www.arts-ed.org.
Hand blown tree ornaments like these will be displayed along with unique works by Micheal Nourot and Nick Nourot. Don't miss this opportunity to get up close to the 2,000 degree molten glass in the glass shop and see the guys turn hot glass into objects of beauty right before your eyes.
Benicia has many Holiday events like the Friday December 2nd evening walk on First Street. There will be singers and wine, food and Victorian costumed revelers. The City of Benicia has a Christmas parade on Saturday morning.
