The Mobile Hot Shop truck is a fully equipped glass blowing studio holding everything needed to blow glass, including the cullet (scraps of clear broken glass gathered for remelting), a red-hot furnace, an array of tools, a workbench and a tent for the artists and equipment.

“I’m looking forward to it being on campus in that it offers students a chance to experience a beautiful art technique,” says PLU student Hannah Kreutz who also serves on the University Student Museum Advisory Committee. “I don’t know how many students make their way to the Tacoma Glass Museum to see glass forms being made, but it’s an incredible thing to witness.”

Try your hand at drawing something you’d like to be made into glass; glass artists might select your design and make it come to life (and yes, you get to keep the finished piece)!

Event sponsored by ArtsWA, with support from the University Students Museum Advisory Committee. Hosted by the School of Arts and Communication.
