Museum of Glass offers free workshops and activities

Tacoma’s Museum of Glass will host a special night of workshops and activities on Friday, Nov. 16, exclusively for college students and their friends.

The event, entitled, “Gather,” will include complimentary glassblowing, glass fusing, and flame-working workshops, admission to their galleries, dancing, a performance by the Seattle sketch comedy troupe, Ubiquitous, and free non-alcoholic beverages and hors d’oeuvres. Activities will run from 6:30 until 10:30 p.m.
