Upcoming Third Friday: "Fueled" - July 15

Glass itself is an infinitely renewable art media, and that’s only the beginning! As an active participant in the St. Louis Green Business Challenge, Third Degree invites the public to its free open house to learn how to reduce their carbon footprint while enjoying a spectacular party!

  • Check out live hot glass demonstrations all night!
  • Reuse your old glass bottles! Have them “slumped” (melted flat) inside our kiln for a variety of uses! $15 per bottle*
  • Experience glass art: Work in our studios to make your own paperweight, flameworked glass beads, fused glass jewelry or nightlight! ($35)
  • Meet with local “green” partners about how you can reduce your carbon footprint! Partners TBA.
  • Eat local! Grab a bite from Urban Eats!
  • Even better: Wash it down with our signature drink, a cucumber cooler with locally-made Square One Cucumber Vodka
  • East Gallery presents “Fueled by Color” – artwork by Sherry Salant: bold and vivid images revealing the beauty of nature.
  • 8:00p: Salt of the Earth is back for another rockin’ good time!
  • 8:30p: The heat is on when St. Louis Fire Technicians perform on the patio!
