For the first time ever, Refract: The Seattle Glass Experience is being hosted by 30 Pacific Northwest Arts Organizations.  

Set to be held October 17-20, this inaugural glass festival will be filled with tours, demonstrations, parties, and exhibits perfect for both visitors and locals. Hands-on glassmaking demonstrations will fascinate kids and adults alike, while evening parties and exhibitions by renowned artists will attract the adult crowd.  

The weekend is designed to celebrate the Pacific Northwest art community. Attendees will be encouraged to explore and learn about artists throughout the region, since every participating organization will be hosting their own special event.  

With more than 700 glass artists, the Pacific Northwest is the leading regional hub for glass art in the United States. From new artists to master glassmakers, this first-ever glass festival in the region is meant to bring enjoyment and education to those who attend, while also celebrating the artists who made the event possible.  

Artists working in the area have come from all over the world, making Refract the perfect place to get to know the region that has become the hub for glass art, its artists, and what makes it all so special.
