Group events at Sonoran Glass School are an exciting way to spend time with family, friends, employees, or members of your club or organization. Groups of 5-20 people can pick from a variety of experiences, all of which allow them to make glass art pieces and/or in one or more of our studios (parties up to 40 can also be accommodated but with a limit on activities).
The price of your experience varies on how many people are in your group and which Make Your Own Glass Art Experiences you’ve scheduled. See group event examples below and call Associate Director Nick Letson at (520) 884-7814, and he’ll be happy to answer any and all questions and personalize a Group Event for your party.
Group Event Examples
A group tour is comfortable for a group of 5-20 people, but more can be accommodated. This tour takes you through the gallery, the Flame Shop, the Warm Shop, and the Hot Shop (studios that focus on torchworking, kiln-firing, and glassblowing, respectively), and the Sculpture Garden. Your group will be shown the tools utilized in each studio and examples of the kind of glass art pieces produced in these shops.
A group tour typically takes 30-60 min.
