Event Details

In this exciting six week course, we will explore and build the foundation needed to create both solid and blown forms. We will start at square one with a heavy focus on developing good habits, awareness, hand skills, and of course: 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 a few of the process used to finish pieces in the coldshop. We will conclude the course with students designing their own unique projects. Students are sure to walk away from this class with a completely new understanding of the material, an array of beautiful objects, and totally hooked on glass! This course is best suited for the ultimate beginner student.

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.
