Come help us celebrate the cycles of light!
Glass-blowing, Blacksmithing, Lampworking and Pop Up artisan and specialty food market!
The FireGathering began over 10 years ago, as a small group of artisans celebrating the solstice and acknowledging how their work, creating things with Fire helped them get through the long darkening and cold winter. Taking glee in the gathering we opened the party to the public 6 years ago and the gathering has grown. Now with live music all day, artisan demonstratios, a fund raiser for Artsworth and a new pop up artisan and specialty food market we are expecting this year's Fire Gathering to be the best evah. So come on over and join in this season to get through the darkest day and look forward to the promise of returning light after the winter solstice. There will be munchies and beverages! The hot shop warehouse will be the center of creativity and last minute holiday shopping opportunities as you enjoy fiery artisan demonstrations. It's a tradition to gather around the hearth/fire this time of year.
