The Art of Drinking Glasses

A double shot of skill building: Glass etching and mixology class in the Bavarian-themed basement of the newly remodeled Towne Crier.

This is a glass-full-sort-of event, with two skill-building classes poured into one evening—along with a side shot of history.

First, Liz Wright from Assembly PDX teaches etching skills. Turn an ordinary glass into something unique and personalized. This evening, Liz provides the skills and tools to craft a custom-etched rock glass for your collection and drinking entertainment.

Once your glass is etched, you’ll want to know what to put in it, right? A celebrity bartender will impart the skills and sensibilities to stir up seasonal concoctions. 

The class is hosted at the newly remodeled (but not yet publicly open) Towne Crier tavern.  Tacee Webb, co-founder for Red Light Clothing, has a love of old, odd, and historical spaces—and with great care has remodeled this former neighborhood tavern. The class will be held in the Bavarian-themed basement, and Tacee will talk about the space’s history and community significance. 

Atlas Obscura is pleased to debut this space, along with these two hand-in-glove, drink-in-glass classes.
