Tie a fish float

InstructorS: Nick Picard & Jason Bush Price: Free

Pre-registration: Required

Price: FREE

Class size: 35

When: Friday 3-4:30


A staple of any tiki bar - the flotsam known as a "glass float". Mass produced and used by fishermen to hold their nets, these colorful glass orbs in woven net sacks are a mainstay of beachcomber style. Nick Picard and Jason Bush will teach you a bit about them and help you tie a sample around a pingpong ball you can have for a necklace.


Jason Bush and Nick Picard are the proud proprietors of the Voodoo Outpost which has returned for the 2020 home bar tour. They moved to Atlanta in 2011 where we were active in the local and national Steampunk scene with their band The Gin Rebellion. Whether mixing a cocktail, preparing a feast, belting out a tune, or sewing an outfit, they tick all the boxes! Always dressed to impress, the attention to detail they effect in apparel extends to everything they do and the friendships they make.
