Heat waves radiate off the 2,000-degree molten glass you gather on your blowpipe as you learn the basics of glass-blowing in this week of hands-on glass in Seattle. Spend two full days in the studios at Pratt Fine Arts Center as experienced artist-instructors provide individual attention in small classes. Marvel at wondrous works of glass during a visit to the studios of major glass artists. Delight in the exhibits of handmade glass in downtown galleries and public installations. Travel to Tacoma to see the Museum of Glass, the Chihuly Bridge of Glass, Union Station's glass exhibit and more.


Highlights

• Work with accomplished artist-teachers as you “do it yourself,” learning glass-blowing, casting, fusing and flame-working.
• See artists at work in the Museum of Glass, cross the Chihuly Bridge of Glass and much more in Tacoma's museum district.
• Delight in a visit to the spectacular Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit at Seattle Center, showcasing the legendary glass-master's sparkling new creations.
