Advanced Beginner Glassblowing

November 1st - December 13th
Shuhei Fujii, Jessi Moore |

Cups are a basic form, and practicing a cylinder will help refine students’ understanding of the glass making process as well as their hand skills. With a firm foundation to work from, we’ll introduce working with “bits” to add decoration and make our cups more unique. Glass “bit work” refers to working with glass in an additive fashion; building a piece by adding several globs of glass together. This class is designed for students who already have some experience in the hot shop and would like to better refine their process, and bring their personality out in their glass!

This class will not meet November 22

What to Expect: Weekly demonstrations will be followed by students working in teams to try out the technique shown that week. Expect to grow your skills and be challenged in the process. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: Some previous glassblowing experience required. You should have taken at least one introductory glassblowing  Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: You can expect to bring some work to fruition during class that can be taken home at the end of the week. If anything is made on the last day of class, students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
