Event description

Description

“Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it” -George Santayana, philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist

The history of glass is a long and rich resource of over 3,500 years. It can be seen as a tool, which can help facilitate the development and realization of ideas, as valuable as a blowpipe, kiln, pencil or paper. Knowledge of the field also helps to locate work in an historical context. as well as assisting in the understanding of contemporary practice and issues. Each class will begin with a presentation on a particular time period and will then move into the studio for a demonstration and/or hands on experience. This class is aimed at artists and collectors who wish to explore this rich history from its beginnings to the now.

This class is being offered as part of our 40 for 40 series, a celebration of the 40th anniversary of UrbanGlass.

Instructor: Jane Bruce
Weekly | 6 sessions: October 21 - December 2 (no class on 11/25)
Saturdays, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
