March's Maker Mixer will be hosted by the Dearborn Glass Academy!
The Glass Academy is the creative brainchild of founding artists Chris Nordin and Michelle Plucinsky. An extensive background in the glass arts with Bachelors of Fine Arts from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, and Alfred University in New York (respectfully), both artists have a wide resume of skills. The current studio functions in a variety of ways; as a teaching facility, event space, and a design studio. This 14,000 square foot facility, tucked away in a vintage tool and dye area of Dearborn’s west side, aims to expand consumers awareness of how handcrafted glass can be utilized as a functional and/or decorative element in modern applications.
Feel free to bring or invite other craftspeople, makers, or advocates. Maker Mixer is a monthly event sponsored by the Center for Craft & Applied Arts and Design. Make. Detroit. We welcome additional sponsoring organizations, volunteers, and hosts
Come join Detroit area craftspeople for drinks, light refreshments and conversation!
