Event Details

Always keep it turning! This all-ages, introductory course in glass working will instill the fundamentals of proper technique in both the hot shop and cold working processes. Two days of funky and informed instruction will get students feeling loose and comfortable in the hot shop while sharpening skills in tool dexterity and teamwork. Correct equipment usage and best working temperature will be stressed in professional demonstrations and hands-on practice. Turn Baby Turn instruction and exercises will provide young students with a strong foundation and well-rounded understanding of successful glass practices. Each student will learn the necessary dancing steps to disco with the material and finesse their way through future challenges in the glass studio. Open to ages 11 and up.

Instructor: Keith Mendak
Weekend | 2 sessions: January 7 & 8
Saturday and Sunday, 10:00am - 3:00pm

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.
