Children’s Memory Bubble Workshop


  • Salem Art Works, Glo Glass Shop 19 Cary Lane Salem, NY, 12865 United States (map)

Families are encouraged to bring their children to this unique glass blowing event at Salem Art Works. The children will pick the colors for their personalized memory bubbles and sit at the bench and assist the Alzheimer’s glass blowers. After the gaffer (the main glass blower) blows out the glass bubble, the children will whisper their memories into the glass. Their favorite memory will forever be encapsulated by the glass as it chills from a molten 2,300 degrees into a solid form. The children’s memory bubbles will be available July 16th at the Alzheimer’s Awareness Brunch.
