A harvest of hand-blown glass pumpkins is ripe for the picking at the annual Glass Pumpkin Patch sale at Rochester Institute of Technology.
The fundraiser will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18, in the Red Barn, westside of campus off of Minett Drive.
Students and faculty from RIT’s School for American Crafts’ glass program made the one-of-a-kind pumpkins and gourds to sell. Vases and paperweights will also be available for purchase. The prices range from $15 to $150 (cash and checks accepted only).
The proceeds of the sale will benefit the Visiting Artist Series in the School for American Crafts’ glass program and the RIT Women’s Council Scholarships. Organizers hope to raise $15,000.
