Event Details

The purpose of this introductory workshop is to create a platform for artists to understand the basics of molten glass and utilize it as a medium for artistic expression. Through group experiments and demonstrations, we will analyze the characteristics and behavior of glass from an aesthetic perspective, working towards developing conceptual ideas. We will focus on the performative qualities of the process as opposed to the final object. Our actions will materialize in the form of impermanent artwork, documented through video and photography. The objects made will be a print of our ephemeral experience. This class is open to beginner and intermediate students. Coming with ideas and areas of interest to explore is highly encouraged.

Instructor: Romina Gonzales
Weekly | 6 sessions: March 11 - April 18

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.
