Golden Glassblowing Experience
This 'hot shop' adventure invites you to create your own glass art in the Last Frontier, complete with real gold in your finished piece. Tea service, lunch or dinner is also on the menu -- a delicious way to end this hands-on experience.
Your tour begins as you board your motor coach for a narrated tour of Skagway en route to Jewell Gardens, a tranquil oasis of organic flowers and plants. Upon your arrival, your guide will offer a private orientation to this spectacular northern show garden.
Enter the hot shop, where you'll learn the ancient art of working with molten glass. You'll create the ultimate Alaska memento, a handmade ornament to float in your garden pond, or hang in a window or on a Christmas tree. In the spirit of the Gold Rush, you'll have the opportunity to incorporate 24-karat gold for dazzling effect. Your work of art can be shipped anywhere in the world at no additional charge.
Embark on a guided glass gallery tour of hand-blown works, followed by tea service, lunch or light dinner (depending on time of day), and made with fresh ingredients from the garden, accompanied by a glass of beer or wine. You're free to wander in the gardens, gallery and shop.
Your tour concludes with a scenic drive back to the pier.
