Workshops result in two glass ornaments made using advanced techniques: one ornament will have the appearance of being covered in glistening snow, and one will have a shiny, metallic texture. Workshop students use high-quality solid transparent and opaque colors, and each ornament comes with a gift box. See upcoming class schedule here.
Redmond School of Glass
For sand to turn into glass, something must heat it to more than 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit—something like a meteor crashing into the earth, a volcano erupting, or lightning striking a beach. At Redmond School of Glass, a team of instructors with 10+ years of experience take care of the heating part, dipping into a chamber for dollops of molten glass that students turn into pieces of art. They lead one-time sessions as well as six-week courses—which maintain a student-teacher ratio of 2:1—imparting their expertise through projects that involve crafting ornaments, vases, and dishes. And they've stocked their studio with all the necessary tools, such as wooden blocks for shaping and jacks for cutting, to help make the art of glass blowing more accessible to the community. The area's world-renowned scene claims sculptor Dale Chihuly, the Pilchuck Glass School, and the Museum of Glass; so definitive is glass, in fact, that four out of the last five mayors were made of it.
