Brighten up your winter with a pop of color! This workshop will cover borosilicate glass color techniques that can be applied to jewelry, pendants, marbles, and more. Students will use stringers, frit and their own designs to create detailed patterns that will grow their skills, while making beautiful objects to take home. We will create implosions, one of the most fun and addictive flameworking processes. Other demonstrations will include: raking and feathering, twisty cane, dots, air traps, writing on glass, and how to get beautiful results from striking color. We will cover both solid and tube implosions. This class is open to all levels, from complete beginner to advanced students looking to enhance their skills.

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.
