Tacoma Glassblowing Studio & Gallery (TGS ) is a family business and glass art gallery. TGS is one of the original glassblowing experiences in the Northwest. Visitors can watch the glassblowing process to experience the thrill of hot glass and shop in the gallery for locally handmade, one-of-a kind glass artworks.
They also offer a range of classes for beginners, private lessons, specialty workshops, and series classes for artists or those wanting a more in-depth experience.
The TGS gallery presents glass artwork in the gallery and online store. Each piece is signed and dated by the artist. You’ll find many color choices, sizes, shapes, price ranges, and one-of-a-kind pieces.
In addition, TGS hosts the seasonal events, including the popular Glass Pumpkin Patches in fall and Christmas Art Glass store for the holidays. Find out more about these seasonal events below.
