Get in on the Swedish tradition of hyttsill, where people gather to watch glass artists in action while sharing a meal or drink (or two), when Fredrik Nielsen comes to town this week. Nielsen’s work is currently on display in the American Swedish Institute’s show, “Pull, Twist, Blow: Transforming the Kingdom of Crystal,” in Minneapolis. There are two ways to watch the artist work. Either head to Cocktails at the Castle for a night of demonstrations, DIY glass, street food and drink, or bring the family to an afternoon of fun where you can create a one-of-a-kind slöjd. Nielsen, who the ASI calls a “punk rebellious master glassblower of sorts,” will demonstrate glass blowing at both events.
