From February 1st, each participating business will display its piece of glass art, together with its ‘Tiny Treasure’. A poster in its window will show that a business is part of the Treasure Hunt. Treasure Hunters will search each participating business for its ‘Tiny Treasure’ and receive a stamp on their entry form for each one they spot.
The Treasure Hunt will culminate in a draw for dozens of pieces of glass art at the Festival Expo on 21 February at Christian College, Drysdale.
Festival of Glass convenor Doug Carson said, “Everyone benefits from the Treasure Hunt. It brings customers to local businesses, it promotes local glass artists and it shows local people the beautiful things that artists make with glass. We hope that the Treasure Hunt will build a strong and mutually-beneficial relationship between the Festival, local businesses and local glass artists.”
