Event Details

This class will  highlight some often overlooked cold fabrication techniques that are hugely valuable because they allow artists time to compose work without the expense or infrastructure of a glassblowing studio. There are many post-production techniques that will help both emerging glass professionals as well as established artists in other media.

The class will present the knowledge needed to successfully chemically bond (glue) glass together using  a variety of adhesives and discuss the pros and cons of each. There will also be several demonstrations of both traditional and unorthodox surface treatments including: guilding, patinas, rusting glass, acid etching, and Flextec. I will also share practical information on  ensure the safe packing of glass for ground freight transportation and  international shipping.

Instructor: Robert Burch
Weekend | 2 sessions: January 21 & 22
Saturday and Sunday, 10:00am - 5:00pm

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.
