From the Chartres Cathedral to Mark Chagall, some of the most magnificent windows have been rendered in shades of deep blue. And what would be a better time to venture into the Realm of Blue than a weekend in winter? In this workshop designed for participants with all levels of expertise, we're going to look at some breathtaking examples and cover the essential technical steps of putting together a stained glass piece. Those who've done it before will focus on design and color selection aspects of the process. And everyone will take home a piece done in majestic blue.
Instructor: Sasha Zhitvena

When & Where
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.
