Did you know you can take glassblowing classes right here in Cowtown? We went behind the scenes with SiNaCa Studios to learn more about the organization and how Fort Worthians can get involved.
SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery is an art nonprofit in the Near Southside. The name SiNaCa is the molecular makeup for glass: silicon, sodium, and calcium.
The public access facility — a renovated 1920s gas station at 1013 W. Magnolia Ave. — opened in 2011 and has accommodated 35,000 participants in the past 12 years. The small gallery features creations from 50+ local and national artists.
With three studios — glassblowing, flame working, and kiln forming — there are opportunities for artists of all skill levels in daily classes and workshops.
In addition to public classes, the organization has several outreach programs with Fort Worth ISD, veterans, trauma survivors, and people dealing with housing insecurity. The programs use glass works to teach art, history, science, and culture.

Editor’s pick: I had a wonderful time at the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra’schamber music concert on Sunday at the Kimbell Art Museum. Maestro Robert Spano’s composition with Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor was something to hear, and I’ve never met a Brahms piece I didn’t love — particularly when the performance gets a standing ovation. 🎹
