If you want a tour of my studio, you can contact me at 425-220-7181 or via email at Karlakayart @ gmail.com or direct message me on Facebook or Instagram. I will let you know when the next available tour is. You might try to plan your tour around some of the local festivals see information below.
My studio is in Arlington, WA. About 1 hour North of Seattle. I am located about 15-20 minutes from the Skagit valley fields which host both the Snowgoose Festival and the Tulip Festival. I am located about 5 minutes from the Stanwood Pillchuck Glass Studio. I am also 5 minutes from some of the major entrances to the Pillchuck Tree Farm trails. I am 20 minutes North of the Tulalip Casino/Seattle Outlet Mall and about 10 minutes North of the Angel of the Winds Casino.
Pillchuck Tree Farm: If you do plan to use the trails, but are new to the area, please be aware that you are entering a private forest and all the forest type things apply (bear, cougar, bobcat, etc.). While the trails are often busy in the summer use caution around areas where berries are ripe, etc. Here is a link to their website: https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/pilchuck-tree-farm
The Snowgoose Festival: The festival is held in February (2/22 & 2/23) but the large birds are in the fields during January and February. Both geese and trumpeter swans collect in the fields of Stanwood and LaConner. Both locations are about 15 minutes away from my studio.
