Feeling cold as summer weather lapses?

Come warm yourself in the Foci MCGA Hot Shop! Our class schedule and visiting artists for 2020 have been finalized, and registration is now available on our website. Check out our new offerings! Exceptional for team-building! 

This past week Foci MCGA has the fortune to host visiting artist Xueyu. Xueyu recently received her MFA in Glass Art from China Academy of Art, Hangzhou. Xueyu worked in our hotshot and gave an artist talk sharing her experiences, her artwork, and discussing the glass art movement in China today. This was such a treat to have her in the studio, keep your eyes open for more exciting events.

The Hot Glass Social is a group activity for 6 or more participants that lasts about 2 hours and gives everybody an opportunity to create their own glass sculpture. The thrill of shaping molten glass is unlike anything else available in the Twin Cities metro area. This is an excellent team building experience and truly a unique special event. Your group may bring food and drinks (beer, wine as well if 21+) to enjoy. The art that is made will take a couple of days to cool, so you will need to arrange for someone to return to the studio to pick it up. Bookings are available seven days a week (except major holidays) from 10AM – 9PM. In order to secure your reservation, please schedule at least 7 days in advance to insure we have room to host your group.
