Glassblower Robert Gary Parkes at his studio in Surrey.

Surrey-based glassblower Robert Gary Parkes is again hosting his annual “Christmas at The Loafing Shed” event at his studio.

Glassblowing demos are a highlight at the gallery and studio, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until Dec. 20, from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event offers a chance to “explore a special display of small gift items by local artists and artisans in our casual country Christmas atmosphere,” with complimentary beverages.

The glassblowing action always warms up the studio, located at 9060 184th St.

In addition to Parkes’ blown glass ornaments, the gallery is a place to find works by Deborah Strong (coloured pencil drawings, silk paintings and more), Kathy Neudorf (natural soaps), Maurissa Roden (photo cards) and Jeanette Parkes (jams and preserves).

For more details, visit Loafingshedglass.ca/events or call the studio at 604-612-2753.
