The Worcester Center for Crafts and the WOO Card Program are combining to produce Hot Night in the City WOOphoria on Thursday, August 1 at the Craft Center’s 25 Sagamore Road location.

The night promises to be a hot time with cool adventures in creating, making, eating, and viewing. The Craft Center’s studios include the equipment necessary to produce using Hot processes like glass blowing, enameling, jewelry making, and firing ceramics. Hot Night in the City focuses attention on those processes as well as many of the opportunities for making that are provided annually at the Craft Center.

What to Expect

Hot Night in the City WOOphoria events include: wheel throwing demonstrations with opportunities to try your hand at the wheel and tours of the ceramics studio; glass blowing demonstrations using the Center’s portable glass furnace; opportunities to try your hand at enameling and creating with clay; the opening of Blinded by Science, an exhibit in the Center’s Krikorian Gallery curated by Carrie Crane of five women artists whose work is inspired by scientific ideas; blacksmithing and a metal pour by Joshua Swalec from Ferromorphics; flameworking demonstrations producing glass beads; a display of Carnival Costumes by the Worcester Carribbean American Carnival Association with information about the Center’s upcoming exhibition ¡CARNAVAL!; and surprise additions including a free raffle and much more. There will be food and ice cream on hand as well.

Information about the Craft Center’s Fall class program will be available; students signing up at Hot Night will receive a $10 discount. As a WOOphoria, the event will also include representatives from many WOO venues including The WOO Card, The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, Worcester Music Academy, Coco Beni Confections, Worcester Airport Limousine, Beechwood Hotel/Ceres Bistro, Worcester Chamber Music Society, WCUW, Holiday Inn Express in Auburn, Music Worcester, Mass Audubon Broadmeadow Brook, Knitscape, Ecotarium, Tower Hill Botanical Garden, CVB, Joy of Music Program, Knights Limo, and the Worcester Historical Museum.

“Hot Night is an opportunity for us to turn the center inside out—to spill the studios outside and let our artists interact with the curious,” said Tom O’Malley, a ceramic artist and Head of the Ceramics Program at the Craft Center. “Grab an ice cream, watch the forge, and experience clay; or stay inside and mingle with the Blinded by Science artists, shop in the Gallery Store, talk to WOO people and tour our studios!” Hot Night will be held rain or shine.

Admission is free; swipe for WOO points. The events last 5:30-8 pm. For more information please visit the Worcester Center for Craft's website.
