You Design It; We Make It! | Scarecrow by Elana M. and Helen Tegeler

You Design It; We Make It! is going virtual this fall at CMoG! You asked, we listened! Exciting changes are coming to our popular You Design It; We Make It program, which has been a staple of our on-site hot glass demonstrations for nearly two decades. Families have often asked us if they can send drawings from afar, but it hasn’t been possible—until now! Now entirely virtual, you can submit drawings from wherever you are, then engage with the demo either in person or via livestream to see the selected design coming to life in glass. Here’s how it works: • Draw your idea on a piece of paper • Take a photo of it, and upload it using the digital submission form https://www.cmog.org/glassmaking/demos/you-design-it-we-make-it • Include a description or “artist’s statement” - it helps our team understand your idea • Be sure to include your name, age, and contact information so we can reach out to you if your design is selected Our glassmakers will choose one idea every other week and make that piece, livestreamed from the Amphitheater Hot Shop on the Museum's YouTube channel. We will let the selected designer know in advance so that they can come to CMoG and watch in person or tune in online.
