Big Brothers Big Sisters at AGS

A party of ladies and their young friends, all part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, came to Aquila to make glass pendants. They all had fun times designing and creating little works of art. Big sisters and little sisters alike caught on quickly and had no trouble piecing together their pendants, choosing colors and deciding what kind of texture they would like in the end. Everyone made about 6 pendants!
Scott even got some of them to make little droplets of hot glass (with his help!) and it was brilliant to see their little faces light up in front of the flame as the glass became molten and turned into a little dot.

If you would like to schedule a party like this, give us a call - and if you are inspired to become part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization - please do - click on the link to find more information about volunteering or donating funds for this amazing group of mentors! I like this slogan found on their website:
"Expanding horizons through the power of one-on-one friendships"
