Far beyond the world of commercial signage, glass artists have found in neon lighting a vehicle for experimentation and self expression. Through a series of hands-on projects and demonstrations you will have the time and space to produce the fanciest of all light sources. The first half of this workshop will address the mastery of fundamental technical and aesthetic aspects of tube bending. The second half of the studies will bring focus to the execution of your own design. Studio protocol and standard safety procedures will be thoroughly discussed keeping you, and the people around you, safe.

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.
