This two day workshop will give students an introduction to glass fusing and slumping. We will focus on techniques in cutting sheet glass, methods of melting layers of glass together as well as simple imagery and patterning. Students will work with color and shape to explore the elegance of kiln fused glass. This class will offer hands on demonstrations along with guided studio time, leaving students with hand-made, functional, and unique fused glass objects.

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.
