WMYW and the Blenko Festival of Glass


In this week's WMYW podcast we talk to Creative Director James Arnett about Blenko Glass Company's annual Festival of Glass. This year’s theme is space age design and takes place in Milton, West Virginia, on April 5 & 6. You can attend classes, demonstrations, and a concert by Grown Ass Folks. 

Some of the things you can get into include hands-on glass experiences like Blow-Your-Own Water Bottles and guided classes such as Nightlight and Etching. 

The event also celebrates West Virginia's glass heritage with a reproduction of Don Shepherd's 'Moonscape' Vase and introduces the Blenko Glass Foundation's inaugural fundraising event.
