Event Details

As a glassblower, you depend on your body to make your art, and you ask it to perform daily for you. Repetitive movement and extreme asymmetrical usage of your back, arms, hips, and legs are a regular part of your craft, but over time it puts stress on your joints, causes chronic pain, and can shorten your artistic life. 

They key to a healthy, sustainable life as visual artist is to learn how to stretch, counter pose, and balance the strength in your body. 

This class will focus on just that- strengthening the core for a healthy back, stretching the forearms, wrists, shoulders, and hips, and balancing the asymmetries in the body. You will receive the tools to sustain a healthy happier body, get better sleep, and re-enter your artistic practice with a new appreciation and understanding of your primary tool-your body. 

Instructor: Miriam Wolf

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.
