About the event
Enchanted Fredericksburg Glassblowing's Grand Opening Celebration with Visiting Glassblowing Artist-In-Residence Kevin Baker from March 22-29, and special events continuing all weekend.
Paul Simonette, resident glassblower and co-owner of Enchanted Fredericksburg Ranch, is excited to share this craft at the only studio/hot shop in Fredericksburg where the public can watch glassblowing up close. Glassblower Kevin Baker, from KB Art Glass in San Diego, Calif., is the Visiting Artist-In-Residence from March 22-29, and demonstrate his art of "dancing with a partner who's too hot to touch" throughout the week-long residency.
Saturday, March 25 – Visiting Artist-In-Residence & Glassblowing demos (10 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
Baker and Simonette demonstrate glassblowing daily. RSVP and reservations not required to watch the free glassblowing demonstrations. Glassblowing demos end at closing time. We must start the annealing process at closing time so the glass can very slowly cool over 14 hours before opening the next day.
o Taco plates from La Chaparrita's Antojitos (4 tacos plate - choice of carne, shredded chicken, or veggie, rice & churro beans) for $14/plate, all day until gone.
o 1-2 p.m. - Book reading & signing with author Keith Ruffner, “Making Friends With Feelings” (Glassblowers will take a lunch break from 1-2 pm. Visitors are invited to listen to the book and enjoy lunch during this time.)
