April 20th Glass Blowing with Matt Robertson: After that, at 6pm MST, glass artist Matt Robertson is taking over our channel! Known for animated-giraffe glass and incredible animal pipes in all shapes, colors, and sizes. We'll get a tour of his at-home glass gallery and then jump into a live glass-blowing demo to see how he creates his prints and pipes!
April 22nd Wonka Wednesday with Illy Wonka & KVZ: Tune in for Wonka Wednesday! This Wednesday evening mini-series is curated by dubstep-duo, Illy Wonka, and colleague, KvZ.

April 23rd Get Glazed with KGB Glass: At 6pm on Thursday, Brian Owoc of Portland, Maine is taking over our channels! Brian's baked over half a million donuts in his lifetime and turned his passion for donuts into one of the sweetest art forms our foodie- and canna-brains crave: donut glass! Back in 2001, Brian was on tour with Phish, baking at the local donut-shops, and learning to blow glass. He blew his first donut pipe in 2012 and is now known for his sprinkles, frosted, and jelly-filled donut dry bowls, water pipes, pendants, accessories, and more. Check out how he creates these donut-delights live!

This exclusive hangout will be a great time to ask Chris questions about art, skating, surfing, world travel, spirituality, and more! We'll take our virtual hangs live to both Facebook and Twitch so even if you're not one of the first 100 to get in the Zoom Sesh, you can still chat and watch live! We'll post the Join Link in the Event Page just before we go live!
