VA Hot Glass Festival Kicks Off in Staunton this Weekend
STAUNTON, Va (WVIR) -
Things will be heating up in Staunton this weekend. The 12th annual Virginia Hot Glass Festival gets underway Saturday.
Dozens of regional artists will showcase their finest work at Sunspots Studios. You can see demonstrations and taste a little wine too.
"You can reheat and massage it more as you go, but ultimately you're taking molten glass and you're cooling it into a vessel or an art sculpture or anything of your imagination. That's what makes it so unique. You can really make anything,” said Doug Sheridan, owner of Sunspots Studios.
The event takes place Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.
