Are you ready to get pulled into a whole new world? Glass is one of the most enchanting mediums to work with. Come join the fire and fun, and become truly captivated by the material in this six week course. We will build a strong foundation comprised of: developing good habits, awareness, hand skills, and having fun. Class time will consist of demonstrations, drills, and plenty of one on one attention. As skill building progresses, so will our projects. Starting with solid forms, we will quickly move on to blowing hollow forms, while exploring the exciting world of color applications along the way. We will conclude the course with students designing their own unique projects. You're sure to walk away from this class with a completely new understanding of the material, beautiful objects to take home, and a new love of glass - you’ll be totally hooked!

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.
