Whistler Molten Experience 2013

Molten Experience – Whistler Gathering 2013

Date: April 26, 27 & 28th, 2013
Time: Glass-focused retreat with lodging, food, and fire!
Guest Demonstrator: Amy Waldman-Smith from Ontario
Location: Edgewater Lodge, Whistler, BC

Another great gathering of the Pacific Pyros and others at the 2nd annual Whistler Molten Experience.

Once again our accomodations were the beautiful Edgewater Lodge about 15 minutes from Whistler Village.  We had a bit of rain on the Saturday but otherwise it was wonderful.  Even in the rain the view from the lodge patio of the lake and surrounding mountains was breathtaking.

Our headline guest demonstrator this year was the amazing Amy Waldman-Smith who demonstrated her beautiful Ottoman bead.

Other demonstrators were Joanne Andrighetti demonstrating blown hollow beads and Andrea Symons who demonstrated her beautiful native style pendant beads.

All demos were held in the Gazebo which was much warmer this year thanks to some modifications and a wood stove.  We were all very comfortable.  This years demo’s were also recorded this year and projected to a big screen TV behind the demonstrator so everyone was able to see the demo easily.  4 work stations and 2 kilns were set up for open torch.

Our food was organized by Kirsten & Allan with Allan being our head chef.  We enjoyed kabobs and burgers, fresh salads and fruit.  Breakfast was provided by the lodge and once again was great.
