Cultiva 2016: ROOR Glassblowing Show


Watch ROOR make history live from October 7.-9. at Cultiva 2016. The amazing artists Adam Whobrey (aka Hoobs), Matt Robertson and Nathan Purcell (aka JAG) come together to form the new ROOR-Collab: with their combined expertise they will forge an incredibly complex and impressive artifact at the austrian cannabis convention Cultiva. Be there when ROOR demonstrates what is possible when you combine decades of training, limitless creativity and perfect teamwork – live.

Like last year – when ROOR collaborated with the amazing artists to create the RAINBOW MACHINE ELF – ROOR gets supported by the Arnold Group, which provides three legendary herbies.
