About Swampscott
map
Swampscott Massachusetts is a small scenic seaside community located north of Boston and is home to a large number of commuters who board the train each morning from one of the last remaining Victorian style depots in the country.

There are actually many other interesting and historic buildings situated in Swampscott. They include Marian Court once known as White court which was the summer residence of Calvin A. Coolidge and a Georgian style town hall which was the former home of Elihu Thompson who was the founder of the General Electric Company.

Swampscott beaches attract visitors of all ages who enjoy their refreshing ocean breezes. Fisherman's Beach provides a picturesque view of Swampscott Harbor with its many brightly colored fishing vessels and pleasure boats. Swampscott is responsible for two major contributions to the fishing industry-the Swampscott dory and the lobster pot. These are both still used by fishermen world wide.

The purpose of the workshop is to give you the supplies and instruction you need to design your own 8x10 seascape window. Due to special requirements, we cannot demonstrate or conduct fusing onsite.  What is provided? All supplies are provided. However, you are welcome to bring your own sea glass and beach treasures to personalize your creation. Can I bring my own frame? The 8x10 framesprovided are specially prepared for this process.

Can I order food and drinks at the event?  UNO offers a full menu during the event and you are encouraged to get a bite to eat and have a drink while you create! What if I need to cancel? Can I get a refund? As space is limited and events often sell out, 48 hour notice is required in order to receive a refund. If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance of the event, we will issue you a credit toward a future workshop.  Can someone come in my place? Absolutely! There is no need to make any changes to your registration. Simply have your friend give your name upon check-in.  When will I be able to take home my finished piece? During the workshop, we will help you design your piece. The pieces are then fused off-site and cured for 72 hours. Your finished piece will be available for pickup at the restaurant approximately 10 days after the workshop. We will notify all registrants via email when the pieces are ready for pickup.
