Volunteering is a great way to get involved with Pilchuck Glass School. Volunteers are invited to participate in Pilchuck Glass School's special events and have many opportunities to see creativity in action. They are also celebrated during Pilchuck’s Volunteer Appreciation Event, which includes hands-on art activities and refreshments. This is our chance to thank you for helping to make Pilchuck possible. Volunteers play a critical role at Pilchuck. We simply could not do it without our wonderful group of volunteers.


For more information about volunteering and for specific dates, contact Lauren Waldstein at 206.254.1963, or lwaldstein@pilchuck.com.
