MONDAY, SEPT. 8, 2014 • 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Glass Blowing Demo with Randy Strong followed by a

Private Luncheon & Floral Design Demonstration

Randy Strong - artist, designer, and master craftsman - has created elegant and highly sought-after works in glass for over 25 years in his Berkeley, California studio. By combining his eye for contemporary design with ancient techniques, he designs and creates works of art that are truly unique, including one-of-a-kind sculptures and limited editions, each signed and dated. His work has been collected and displayed throughout the world in such places as the Louvre (Paris), the Osaka Museum of Art (Japan), Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco), the Ludwig Shraffarth Collection (Germany), and the John D. Rockefeller Collection. This is an exclusive opportunity to watch Randy create a custom piece of art in his private studio, a once in a lifetime opportunity.

After the private glass blowing experience at Randy Strong’s studio, the group will make their way to the Claremont Hotel, for a private lunch. During your gourmet lunch, a professional floral designer will demonstrate unique floral designs. You will learn how to design flowers for your own home, with the most amazing florals and arrangements. This is truly a one of its kind experience.
