UGH! The UrbanGlass Hotline
The UrbanGlass Hotline (UGH!) gives students the opportunity to submit questions to our expert instructors about the glass processes they use to create dynamic works in glass. Each session, hosted on Zoom, begins with a short introduction to the teaching artist, followed by an interactive discussion about techniques, concepts, and problem solving.
These workshops offer a range of techniques and skills students will use to gather inspiration, plan, and prepare for their time in the studio.
Any glass artwork starts with inspiration, then a sketch, model, or even just measurements. We invite you to delve into sketching basics or jump ahead into the world of 3D modeling. Learn to articulate and visualize your ideas in helpful ways for your making process. These workshops center around the work that happens before you get into the glass studio to make sure your time making is productive and turns out how you imagined it!

Business of Art
Makers invested in creative processes are not always trained in the business side of fabricating, pricing, marketing, or selling their work and products. Perhaps you’ve made a beautiful line of tableware, jewelry, or sculpture but you aren't sure how to take the work out of the studio and get it into the world. These workshops will address common stumbling blocks on the road to running your own business, selling your work, or even working with fabricators to bring your vision to life.
