The Industrial Arts Center of Gulfport has expanded its opportunities for learning and experiencing glass blowing, as well as other art forms. As it continues its series of “Hot Date Nights” for adults, the Industrial Arts Center of Gulfport has added four summer “Uber Crafts Camps” for youths.

Hot Date Night

Hot Date Nights at the Industrial Arts Center of Gulfport continue each month, with events scheduled for June 14and July 12. Designed for adult couples, the experience includes glass blowing and bead making with the addition of a catered dinner and entertainment. The fee for Hot Date Night is $100 per couple.

Uber Crafts Camp

The new Uber Crafts Campis geared toward youths between the ages of 9 and 15.

During the course of each week-long camp, participants will each create their own glass beads, paperweight, blown glass vessel, metal sculpture, and forged metal bracelet. On the final day of camp, participants will be allowed to return to any of the art forms they have experienced during the week for a final day of exploration.

Each camp will last from Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Spaces are still available for each of the four Uber Crafts Camps to be held: June 9-13, June 16-20, July 14-18, and July 21-25. All materials are included for the creation of the art works and students are also given their own safety glasses, safety mask and gloves. Lunch catered by local restaurants is also included.

Three experienced instructors will be present during each camp and space is limited to 8 participants per camp to allow for the most individual attention and hands-on experience. Fees for Uber Crafts Camp are $350 per participant, or $300 each for two or more siblings attending the same camp.
