MPP Grant Crack at Glass Ribbon Cutting at The Glass Blowing Place & Chillax Café in Alexandria by Reg Coffey

CFN – The Glass Blowing Place & Chillax Café had its grand opening Saturday, 19 May and Liberal MPP (Glengarry–Prescott–Russell) Grant Crack was there to cut the ribbon, glass ribbon that is.

Here you can see the process that the glass blowers went through to get this glass ribbon.

In the front of the glass blowing studio is a café and retail store where you can purchase some of the wonderful glass art produced there as well as other art produced by local artists. You can come in and have a cup of fresh roasted coffee, study the glass artistry and even observe the glass blowers at work. Courses in glass blowing are available on site if you want to try your hand at handling molten glass.

In the picture below you can see Chris Van Zanten, Heinz Kaswurm (a non-glass blowing partner), MPP Grant Crack, Eric Covington, Gian Paolo BAstianello and David Paterson hamming it up for the camera.

  1. We stopped in today. The studio is open for business and looks great, but Heinz tells us that it may be about two more weeks until they’re serving coffee.
