The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch Fundraiser
The Ottawa Glassblowing Co-operative (OGC) will be featuring their Great Glass Pumpkin Patch, a free family-friendly fall event co-hosted with The Merry Dairy. The community is invited on Saturday, September 30, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 957C Gladstone Ave!
Over 200 blown glass pumpkins, collaboratively made by members of the OGC, will be glowing in the natural light, surrounded by the fall colours. Visitors can watch live glass-blowing, and purchase the pumpkins to support the expansion of Ottawa’s growing community of glassblowers. Come early to purchase the pick of the patch! Prices range from $20 to $200 and proceeds from the sale will help finance the OGC’s move to a new studio space.
“OGC is thrilled to be participating in this great community event,” says Jennifer Bennett, OGC member and instructor. “This is a great way to showcase the work of our members and introduce families to the art of glassblowing.”
OGC members will be on hand to demonstrate glass blowing, and answer your questions about co-op membership and glass blowing classes. The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch promises to be an exciting day for the family - handmade glass art, ice-cream, and the opportunity to watch molten glass become beautiful finished pieces!
This outdoor event will be held rain or shine. The Great Glass Pumpkin Patch will be at 957C Gladstone Ave - plenty of free parking!
