BLENKO GLASS Festival Of July 31 and August 1st

Time flies doesn't it?   We've been with the Heart of Glass blog over a decade and the " Blenko Glass  Festival of Glass"  is now 8 years old!

The Festival of Glass  is  Walter Blenko creation that has grown into an event the entire State of WV looks forward to attending.

Collectors and local citizens enjoy being able to tour the factory, to view glass blowing demonstrations, to take classes in various forms of glass arts.

One big plus is the ability to have any item you purchase signed by a Blenko Family member.  You'll also get to meet Mr. Walter, Mr. Andy and their families.   Blenko Glass Company is family owned.  Once you attend the Festival of Glass you'll feel as if you are a part of this extended family.

The 8th Annual Festival of glass is to be held at Blenko Glass factory of Friday July 31 and Saturday August 1.  
Classes fill up fast - so visit the www.blenkoglass.com website to sign up or phone Blenko Glass.

Everyone is WELCOME!
