Each summer Pilchuck welcomes artists of all levels to participate in courses that delve into traditional forms of glassmaking, as well as unique hybrid courses that explore cross-pollination. Digital fabrication with 3-D scanning, printing, modelling, glass and electronics, glass and ceramics, model and mold fabrication, neon, plasma, flameworking, hybrid printmaking, writing and equipment fabrication are among the diverse methods and topics offered in Summer 2020.



Pilchuck offers two residence programs that are open to yearly applications: The Emerging-Artist-in-Residence Program as well as the John H. Hauberg Fellowship, a collaborative residency. Additionally, each summer several Arists-in-Residence are invited by the Artistic Director to experience the immersive setting of campus while both exploring their craft and sharing their expertise with Pilchuck students.



Now in its second year Pilchuck is proud to host youth workshops in early spring and late fall. Partnering with Hilltop Artists, Tacoma, and Lummi Youth Academy, Bellingham, local students are invited to Pilchuck's campus for transformative, immersive retreats, and to connect with professional artists.
