Spring Tours and Artists@Work

2020 Tours are Canceled

In the interest of the safety of our community and the ongoing efforts to fight this global pandemic, we have decided to cancel 2020 Spring Tours.

If you had purchased tickets to 2020 Spring Tours, look for an email from our team soon regarding refund options. 


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 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 info@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 us directly at info@pilchuck.org to complete your request. 

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Choose from a variety of tour times and experiences including: Tour only, Tea & Tour, Lunch & Tour, Brunch & Tour (weekends only), or Off the Beaten Path Tour.


Updated cancellation/refund policy: This year only, Pilchuck Glass School is offering refunds to those who have been affected by COVID-19, less any credit card fees. If the circumstance arises where Pilchuck should cancel the event, all tickets will be refunded, less any credit card fees. We would like to thank you for your interest in Spring Tours, a fundraising event that benefits Pilchuck Glass School, a 501(c)3 nonprofit. If you’re unable to attend, we’ll gladly accept your ticket as a full donation and will provide a tax letter accordingly. Thank you for considering this option during these difficult times. 

We will continue to monitor recommendations and advisories for Skagit and Snohomish County events. 




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.
