Gary Rosenthal is welcoming visitors to his studio to make Jewish ritual artwork on Sunday, December 11th.
Take a tour of Gary's studio (he'll show how the glass is made!); make your own dreidel, menorah, mezuzah, candlesticks or tzedakah box; kiddush cup (and possibly more!). Participants arrange small pieces of glass to create a unique mosaic design. Gary and his staff then fuse the design to metal, to create a piece that is beautiful to use in your own home or to give as a gift. The process is fun, and you get to create incredible heirloom-quality Judaica, regardless of your level of artistic talent. This experience is great for multiple generations, so feel free to bring along grandparents or other relatives who are in town.
Please note that this open studio event is less than two weeks before Chanukah, We will try our best to have pieces finished in time for you to pick up before 12/24, but we cannot guarantee everything will be finished before the first night. You may pick up finished artwork at the studio during business hours or have it shipped for an additional fee.
Registration is $22.50 per individual OR family. The $22.50 will be applied towards the cost of your project(s). Only register one time, even if you plan to do multiple projects and/or bring multiple kids.
When you attend the day of the event, you can choose which project(s) and how many you would like to create. The $22.50 registration is applied to your project, and if you select something that costs more than $22.50, you can pay the difference at the event. Samples of the projects you can choose listed below. There may even be more options the day of the event. (The ones you create will have the same metal frame, but the color and design of the glass mosaic will be your very own.)
Space is quite limited, so register now! Registration is non-refundable, but if you are unable to attend, you may transfer your registration to another family. Finished artwork will be ready about two weeks after the event, and you may either pick it up at the studio (during business hours) or have it shipped to you for an additional fee.
Have any questions? Let us know!
