Every spring, Pilchuck Glass School welcomes the public to tour our scenic, private campus and watch renowned glass artists at work. Many organizations find the campus inspiring and utilize this exclusive tour as a team-building excursion for employees, or for entertaining out-of-town guests or clients. 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.


Each spring, in recognition of their leadership and generosity, we invite several artists to campus for five-day residencies. Each artist brings a team of talented assistants, display examples of their latest creations, make new work and welcome the public to watch. Pilchuck Glass School is pleased to recognize Jen Elek and Ethan Stern as Artists @ Work for 2017. Elek and Stern have been a part of the fabric that has influenced and directed the course of the school and the studio glass movement. During Artists @ Work, both artists will display examples of their latest designs, create new work, and welcome the public to observe.
