Did you know Washington is home to more than 700 glass artists? We know you know one of our most famous, Dale Chihuly, but there are hundreds of emerging artists, master glassmakers, glass blowers and more that have made their home in or around Seattle. This year from October 17-20, for the first time ever, Seattle is hosting Refract: The Seattle Glass Experience, a glass festival like no other.

Refract will feature parties, exhibits, a gala and auction, hands-on experiences and more! The opening night party will be held at our beautiful Chihuly Garden and Glass, one of Seattle’s top tourist attractions. Guests will be wowed by the stunning displays while also mixing and mingling with the top artists.

Friday evening (October 18) attend Fused, a party at Pratt Fine Arts Center where numerous glass artists got their start. Peruse through artist demonstrations, live music, food trucks, cash bars, and a live bronze pour!

Saturday and Sunday (October 19/20) stroll through Seattle neighborhoods and hit up many of the 20 Seattle artists who will be opening up their studios to welcome you.

Are you looking to experience glassmaking yourself? Refract will have classes and workshops to blow your own glass, make mosaics, luminaries, fused glass and more!
