Currently only staff, alumni, and advanced students 18 years + are working in our hot shops.

We’re operating in small “pod” groups under a very strict schedule. We’re practicing social distancing, have a rigorous cleaning schedule, take temperature checks at the door and require masks while in the shop.

This current production work is part of a new Hilltop Artists program: Alumni Team.

The members of the Alumni Team are advanced artists who work together to professionally create glass art such as pumpkins and ornaments. These artists earn a stipend at a higher rate than Team Production, AND earn hot shop time to create their own artwork.

If you want to learn more about Alumni Team, please email Jess.
