You're invited to the 3rd annual Boro Derby!
Join us for live music, glass demonstrations, art auction and raffle, as well as food and fun activities for kids, too! This is a family friendly event, so please bring the whole gang!
This event strives to bring together glass artists and members of our community, to give back to children in need. An incredible idea dreamt up by Brandon Welk in 2012. Brought to you by The Evergreen State Project. Beneficiaries include; Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Agape Home Women and Children's Shelter and Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery.
Fourteen competing artists will build glass derby cars and race them down an official pinewood derby track. Many other artists will compete and send in cars, for a special "mail-in" category.

Hello to all our friends out there! We thought you might like the scoop on exactly what is happening with the newest part of 7 Point Studios. The Boro School, Seattle's newest glass-blowing school and facility is set to open mid January 2014 - just around the corner. We'll be putting out details regarding the Jan. 18th Open House very soon.
We've been getting everything ready for our Glassroom (that's classroom for glass), purchasing tools & supplies (did you see all the pretty torches?), getting wholesale accounts set up, and purchasing some pretty slick software to help manage our classes and our lives. We couldn't be more excited for the things in store for The Boro School and all of you current or soon-to-be glassblowers! Visit the website www.theboroschool.com to get all the information you need on the classes we will be offering. We expect to start registration on January 11th and will initially be offering mostly Introductory and Beginners classes. We'll keep you posted!

Our buddies Meister Wu and Joseph Brooks aka Eras and Burn collaborated on their first piece together! The piece was part of an installation for the Jackson Street Music History Project. We were lucky to have them create it here at 7 Point Studios! You can see this beautiful piece on 21st and Jackson.
Glassblowing demos and live painting by renown artists in the northwest, an aerialist and latex fashion show, vendor booths and so much more were all a part of collaborative effort to celebrate our grand opening and Dope Magazine's annual Dope Cup!
