VIDEO: Glass Blowing in Glen Echo
Paul Swartwood of Glen Echo Glassworks demonstrates his craft.
Residents gathered at Glen Echo Park Saturday for the Winter's Eve festival, which featured activities, performances, a hot chocolate bar and the Glen Echo Park Partnership's Holiday Art Show and Sale. Festival-goers also got a chance to take glass blowing classes and watch demonstrations by Paul Swartwood, the resident glass artist at Glen Echo's Glassworks studio. Patch stopped by to chat with Swartwood about his craft. Don't miss our bonus video, in which Swartwood demonstrates making a pony out of glass.
The Holiday Art Show and Sale is ongoing through Jan. 9, and glasswork is on sale during the show. Check Glen Echo's website for more information.
