Group events are an exciting way to spend time with friends, colleagues, 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 or see exciting demonstrations in one or more of our studios. Our talented teaching artists provide comprehensive instruction and expert facilitation to ensure that your group has a safe and inspiring visit to our studios.
The price of your experience depends on how many people are in your group and which Make-Your-Own Experience you’ve scheduled. Some projects are available off campus, at your hotel, resort, or conference center as well.
See examples below and call us at 520-884-7814. We look forward to personalizing an event just for you.

Group Event Examples
A group tour typically takes 30-45 min.
$5 per person; may be combined with other activities
A tour is comfortable for a group of 5-10 people, but more can be accommodated, depending on your schedule. 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.
Tour and Glassblowing Demonstration
The Tour & Demo takes 1 to 2 hours
$15 per person, $150 minimum
The Tour & Demo Option features all of the above with an exciting glassblowing demonstration at the end. We will set up chairs, a PA system, and wireless microphone for our instructor to walk you through the process and explain the techniques he/she is utilizing along the way. The artist typically makes a vase or sculptural item in the studio, and these pieces are frequently available for puchase.
Tour and Make-Your-Own Experience
Allow at least 2 hours for this experience
Varies from $40-$85 per person, depending on the project
The Tour & Make-Your-Own Experience features the tour and a chance for your group to get in a studio and make a glass project alongside an experienced teaching artist. Pricing depends on the choice of project and number of participants.
