Winter capita campaign - Wet Dog annealers

Help support us as we improve the studio

To meet the needs of our growing community, Foci is currently in the process of raising funds to acquire two new annealers from Wet Dog Glass. To jumpstart the campaign, we have secured a $10,000 grant from Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. We will also need to match this grant with an additional $15,000. This is where we need your help! Please visit our GoFundMe page to help us continue making improvements to the studio.
