Studio 55 Arts Guild Program

Wednesday, May 8, 2024 at 1:00 PM

LOCATION: National Avenue Christian Church

1515 S. National Ave., Springfield, MO

Program by Terry Bloodworth. Glassblower

We are back in our usual location for our May meeting, and we're thrilled to feature Terry Bloodworth as our speaker. Many of you may remember Terry from his 25 years of working and entertaining at Silver Dollar City as a glassblower. Others may know him from his shop that he had in town, "Springfield Hot Glass." You can still see his work at Waverly House Gifts and Gallery. The photos below are examples of his works that were at Springfield Hot Glass. Terry intends to bring to our meeting examples of his work and some of the tools of the trade, and he will also talk about his journey in art and entertainment. Hope to see you there on May 8 at 1 p.m. at the Gallery in National Avenue Christian Church.
