This class is the perfect opportunity to combine two very different methods of creating with glass. Crossing over techniques from both the Hot Shop and the Flame Studio, students will get a fully rounded introduction into working with fire! In the hotshop we will learn how to stretch, sculpt, and blow glass. In the flame studio we will work with torches to melt glass rods and play with color and form. In both shops students will learn the fundamentals of studio safety and the fun of working together to create. Bring your ideas to life in this exploratory workshop for all ages!

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.
