Make and Donate: A Gathering for Beads of Courage

  • Pollack Glass Studio & Gallery 4132 Magazine Street New Orleans, LA 70115 USA (map)

This month we are teaming up with our friends at Beads of Courage.  We are super excited to be a participating studio in this year's Beads of Courage bead drive!  

Starting at 10am and going until 8pm.

Beads of Courage is a great organization! The Program is a "resilience-based intervention designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with serious illness. Through the program children tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path."

There will be food, drinks, live lamp working demonstrations, a table available for more information on the program, a cash donation jar (we have a $1,000 cash donation goal!), and plenty of artists to chat with, all while giving back to a great cause. Come by and say hello any time between 10am and 8pm! Visit our Facebook page for more information. 

If you are a flame worker, you may come and create glass beads to donate and we will send them to Beads of Courage. If you are interested in being an artist-participant, please contact us and we will send you the logistics.
