Biot & Hilltop Artists
BiotTacoma Sister Cities is invited to a Biot Fundraiser that is happening on Thursday, March 14th from 5-7 pm during our Gallery Hours! Please encourage people that are French or interested in the culture as a celebration of our French Exchange Program! This summer a Hilltop Artists student will travel to Biot, France for 3 weeks to study with master glassblower Antoine Pierini. In return, we will host a glassblowing student from Biot during our Summer Glass Arts Program. Once per month, we open up the Hilltop Artists gallery for public shopping hours. Come check out our beautiful student-made glass art! We have jewelry, vases, fused glass….you never know what unique treasure you might find as student-made art is always one-of-a-kind. The proceeds from our glass sales go straight back into our programs and help us provide tuition-free glass arts instruction for 650 students each year. Proceeds from the sale of special Biot Floats will help fund this one-in-a-lifetime experience. If you don’t want to shop, please join for some french-themed treats (charcuterie, anyone?) and live demos by students in the hot shop. Purchase your tickets by clicking here!
