Each year, Sunspots Studios proudly hosts The Virginia Hot Glass Festival on the last full weekend of April. These two days are filled with exhibitions and demonstrations by hot glass and flame work artists from around the region.
Invited are more than a dozen hot glass artists who demonstrate non-stop throughout the day. We also open our expansive 2nd floor as a vendor area where you can see works from all our visiting artists and enjoy wine tasting by Barren Ridge Vineyards.
Special Activities during the Festival include
Kid’s Challenge – Glass artists make pieces based on drawings by children at the Festival.
Flaming Ray Gun – Glass artists build a ray gun that shoots flames.
Fire-Breathing Dragon – Josh Ries from Art of Fire makes a fire-breathing dragon.
Wine Tasting – Barren Ridge Vineyards offer tastings & sell wine by the glass.
Stone Carving – VA Stone Carvers Guild demonstrate their trade across the street.
