Guests will enjoy live glassblowing demonstrations and Q&A sessions with community artists.
Chihuly Garden and Glass will kick off the holidays in the Glasshouse on Nov. 3 with Dale Chihuly's temporary installation Winter White Tower with Golden Putti. This 14-foot-tall tower, which made its debut in 2014, celebrates the Venetian influence of Chihuly's work and his adored Putti series.

On Nov. 10 from 3:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., attend the exhibition's Chef Demonstrations at Collections Café and learn how to make beignets with honey and white chocolate espresso caramel. These fluffy, chewy beignets are one of Collections' most popular desserts and will be served with coffee and holiday cider. The chef demonstrations are designed to highlight the playful flavors leveraged for some of the restaurant's most popular dishes.
In addition, Chihuly Garden and Glass will welcome back the several of its most popular programs. Covering a variety of interests, guests are encouraged to explore Yoga Under Glass, Chihuly through the Lens and Specialty Tours and Gallery Talks throughout the winter season.
