Join us at Jewell Gardens and Garden City Glassworks in historic Skagway Alaska for a summer you will never forget! We are a certified organic show/produce garden and glass studio that offers a unique and wonderful experience to guests from around the world.
Our glassworks guide position consists of greeting, orienting and guiding guests through their glass studio experience and garden. The guide will team with one of our experienced glassblowers and teach the guests the basics of glassblowing and help them to assist in making their own glass ornament. Each tour includes food service and the guide will serve his or her guests and use the time to get to know the participants. They will also show guests various pieces in our glass gallery or encourage guests to walk the garden grounds. Guides will also be trained in giving garden tours, knowledge will be shared about the history of the garden and the plants growing onsite!
Guides do not need a comprehensive knowledge of glassworks to apply, only a passion for learning and teaching others. Jewell Gardens will train the guides in the specifics of glassblowing and how they will be guiding their group through the process.
Our season runs from the end of April to the end of September.
