Uva Wine Bar

Join us for a riveting seminar on the material and cultural evolution of drinking glasses! We’ll begin 4000 years ago with the accidental “invention” of glass. We will then jump from the development of glass blowing in ancient Rome though Medieval times when craftsmen started designing a wide array of drinking glasses. (If you’ve seen Game of Thrones you’ll be fascinated to learn about the different glasses they used, and why.) Through the humble everyday drinking glasses of modern times we will get a glimpse into different people’s culture, politics and colorful drinking games! Finally, you’ll understand why different types of glasses were used through the ages, and why each type of wine has a different shaped glass!

Ticket cost includes a hand-blown wine glass made by local glassblower & presenter, Rebecca Potash. Purchase Tickets Here.
