Event Details

Join us for our first collaborative class with Pioneer Works , one of Brooklyn's most dynamic spaces for transdisciplinary creativity. By utilizing the studios of both Pioneer Works and UrbanGlass, this workshop will introduce students to the process of rapid prototyping and its translation and applications to glass casting.

The first two sessions will be held on Saturday and Sunday at Pioneer Works where students will learn the basics of 3D modeling with Rhinoceros. A small prototype will be initially printed after the first class and reviewed the following week. During the second class, students will review their print and then design and prepare their final project for 3D printing.

The class will conclude with a weekend casting workshop at UrbanGlass in which students will translate their models into glass. In the process, students will generate a reusable rubber mold which can produce multiple wax models. A mold will be made from one of the waxes and filled with glass in a kiln create a cast  glass version of your original rendering.

Students should expect to take away one completed glass object and two printed forms as well as a basic understanding of the process. This is an introductory course, no previous experience required.

UrbanGlass

UrbanGlass is dedicated to furthering the use of glass as a creative medium, through studios, classes, publications, exhibitions, and events.   We offer a comprehensive education program for students at every age and skill level - from children to working artists - in a variety of techniques, including kiln casting, lampworking, mosaics, and stained glass. Over 500 students a year come to study and work with faculty that includes world-renowned artists and designers. UrbanGlass serves as the primary studio of over 200 professional artists and designers.


Founded in 1977 by artists Richard Yelle and Erik Erikson as the New York Experimental Glass Workshop, UrbanGlass was the first artist-access glass center in the United States and is now the largest. Previously, those interested in working in glass could only do so at art schools, in factories or by building their own studios, but when UrbanGlass opened its doors, glass as an art medium became widely available.
