WheatonArts invites all glass enthusiasts to join us during the Virtual Paperweight Fest 2021, as we celebrate our 50+1 Anniversary and the 46th Anniversary of the Paperweight Fest, also known for many years as “Paperweight Weekend.”
Experience the Art of Paperweights like never before! Get caught up in the history & techniques of glass paperweights with unique presentations, attend break-out sessions with world-class paperweight artists, watch live demonstrations as artists create with molten hot glass, and shop individual weights with Artists & Dealers!
Flexibility. Choose your participation level for the Fest. Stay for each presentation or come and go based on your time and interests. You control your path as you would at an in-person event. HOPIN, the virtual platform we are using for this event, allows attendees to move in and out of break-out session rooms with ease throughout the weekend.
Paperweight Fest content will only be available to ticket purchasers. Registrants will receive an email with the video links after they have been edited and uploaded. They will not be made public.
