09/30/23 Bavarian Altoona Beach Glass Art Party ($48+)
September 30 (Saturday)
The Bavarian Aid Society - ask for the Heritage Room
112 S 13th St, Altoona, PA 16602
The Bavarian has ample parking and is conveniently located. You do not need to be a member of the Bavarian to attend this fun night out!
When you arrive at the Bavarain, come directly to the Heritage Room. Doors open 5:00 for dinner at your crafting seat, which is optional and pay your own way. We think it’s easier to eat first and then craft but you are welcome to do whatever you’d like. Food can be ordered throughout the event.
Crafting starts anytime 5:30-6:30PM (but not before 5:30, thanks! Gives us a chance to eat). A Beach Glass Art piece takes 1.5-2.5 hours to make depending on your personal design. Everyone crafts at their own pace.
Food and soft drinks or alcoholic beverages can be ordered anytime during the class for CASH ONLY (the Bavarian has ATMs). The Bavarian Cafe offers delicious food! Food and drinks are optional and pay your own way. Here is a link to their menu http://bavarianhall.com/bavarian-cafe/
We have TONS of beachy items (shells, glass, colored sand, starfish and much much more) to choose from and please bring your own unique treasures if you'd like, including photos that can be embedded. There is no need to purchase anything ahead of class to bring. We have everything and then some. This is NOT a follow along of one design so bring your creativity (we’re here to help, too)! Need inspiration? Our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/gildajagger/photos and instagram account @GildaJagger are the best resources! You can see beautiful photos of art made on a night out with us. We also have lots on our Pinterest Board https://www.pinterest.com/gildajagger/beach-glass-art-inspiration/ . Not a big fan of the beach but interested in making a glass art piece (and having a fun night out)? We have lots of various glass options to choose from.
How do I sign up? You will choose the frame you would like to craft and pay. The night of the event your frame will be waiting for you. If you order 3 frames, we will assume you are 3 people. We do not recommend crafting more than 1 per person per event, it’s difficult.
Frame and glass measurements are approximate. Frames are manufactured wood.
Standard Frame $48 - 11" x 9" (glass area 9.5" x 7.5")
Distressed Style Frame $49 - 12" x 10" (glass area 9.5" x 7.5", frame width 1 1/4")
Brown Frame $55 - 13.25" x 10.25" (glass area 11.5" x 8.5") - wholesaler says this is manufacturered wood but the grain is almost like a print or a sticker. It's brown with gray accents. It looks nice in person but, to me, I think it's possible it's plastic.
You will need to transport your art home flat and keep it flat to dry for 24 hours and do not touch. Your piece will be thoroughly dry in 48 hours. We provide wax paper to put in your car.
Class will be limited to 30 people. You may reserve a table for your group (no extra charge). A google form will be sent out prior to the event. If your group is larger than 6 you can also tell us that on this form and we will make sure we have a bigger table setup for you.
Contact us anytime (we meant it!) with questions firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 814-937-2634. We'd love to see you there!!
