EVENT OVERVIEW

Every spring, Pilchuck Glass School welcomes the public to tour our scenic, private campus and watch renowned glass artists at work. During Spring Tours, visitors can view the fascinating processes of glass making, talk with working artists, tour the studios, and hear about the history and the future of the school.

Tours are available May 20-24, 2020, and are led by a Pilchuck docent. General tours last approximately 60 minutes. Pilchuck Glass School’s picturesque campus is on a tree farm with uneven terrain, unpaved pathways, and stairs, so we recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes. If you have mobility restrictions, please contact Development Manager Torie Long at (206) 254-1966 or tlong@pilchuck.org before booking.

The Off the Beaten Path Tour is an extended tour and light hike (approximately 90 minutes). In addition to visiting the main campus buildings, you’ll visit the Chihuly Cabin, Buster Simpson’s Treehouse, the Trojan Horse, and end the tour at Inspiration Point with a breathtaking view of the Puget Sound. This tour is better suited for active persons without mobility limitations.

For questions on your already purchased tickets, please contact Torie directly at tlong@pilchuck.org or (206) 254-1966 to complete your request. All sales are final.

 

2020 ARTISTS@WORK

During our 2020 Spring Tours, Pilchuck Glass School is pleased to recognize the artists of Gray Barn Studios: Jimmy Anderegg, Conor McClellan, and Megan Stelljess as Artists@Work. Individually, these artists are known for their incredible skill and have been a part of the Pilchuck community in many capacities; as students, instructors, staff, and gaffers. During Artists@Work, each artist will display examples of their latest designs, create new work, and welcome the public to observe.
