give a gift to pilchuck

The experiences that are gained through participation in our program are truly invaluable. Students, artists-in-residents and instructors alike depart from our campus inspired and invigorated. Careers are propelled, and amazing artwork is generated during each person's stay at Pilchuck.

In the video to the right you can hear more about what is so special, and why we are all so lucky to be involved in this program. Help us to continue delivering these same experiences to other artists, please: 

2015 Summer Session

The 2015 summer course catalog has been released! Navigate our newly revamped website to see all the latest and greatest information on the summer's instructors, artists in residence, and application details. 

Speaking of which, things are a little different this year: Student applications are now accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until courses fill. (Waitlists are maintained for all filled classes and applicants will be contacted when space becomes available.) 

The Pilchuck campus office will be closed for the holiday break from December 22–January 5. Student applications made during this time will be processed the week of January 5. Starting that week, you can view a list of current courses openings here.

    Every session for more than 30 years the Pilchuck Glass School community experience has been celebrated in a T-shirt. Each one has been illustrated by a session participant, selected by a competitive vote, and printed locally. This retrospective exhibition brings together years of such designs, showcasing the variety of Pilchuck's attendees, and their incredible talent, humor, and wit.


    Join us for our opening reception on December 4th, and wear your session shirt! (We'll be wearing ours) There will be an exclusive selection of reprinted shirts on sale, featuring 3 of the most popular designs from Pilchuck history.

    Special thanks to John Reed, for contributing to this exhibition  from his extensive collection, and to Ed Rooney and Kyle Davis, for printing these shirts for the past 27 years.
