Event Details

In this workshop we will use basic glass techniques to rethinking and redesign common glass into new possibilities. Each of the four sessions will rotate to a different studio method to find experimental and utilitarian solutions to our recycling. We will explore the cold shop to learn simple ways of cutting glass and adding pattern and texture. As well as the kiln and flame studio to re-melt found glass and collage imagery with drawing. We will discover newly designed objects and creative outcomes. This class will leave the students empowered to head home and recraft their own recycling bin. Students are welcome to bring in their own found glass to experiment on!

Instructor: Amanda Patenaude

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.
