Courses + Catalog

Update 06-26-2020

In response to growing concerns around COVID-19, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel programming through the end of 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience and are doing our best to communicate with all who have been affected by these cancellations. Read more here.


Make the most of your summer and fall when you study at Pilchuck Glass School! Since 1971, artists and instructors from around the world have converged on campus to exchange ideas and push the boundaries of glass. 

The concepts that rise from the exploration of course themes will be realized with hot and cold glass in areas such as glassblowing, hot-glass sculpting, sand- and kiln-casting, fusing, neon, painting, flame working, printmaking, mixed-media sculpture, engraving, 3D modeling, printing and electronics. Find the courses that speak to you by looking at our handy Course Index page!

Pilchuck’s Hotshop, Annex, Studio Building, Printshop, Flatshop, BotLab, and Woods and Metal Studio are staffed by experienced coordinators to facilitate an almost limitless exploration of the material.
