An Exploration of Glass Jewelry

January 16th - January 20th
Rachel Rader |

This workshop is an in-depth introduction to glass jewelry made in the kiln and cold shop. Learn to create wearable glass forms featuring the brilliant patterns and colors conjured by fusing glass and then carving unique jewels from your kilnformed experiments. In this class you’ll be introduced to a survey of jewelry design in combination with metal findings to create heirloom quality jewelry. No pre-requisite in glass or metal required, just a love for jewelry and a desire to learn. 

What to Expect: Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Additional work time for intensive students: Students will also have access to additional hours in the flat shop, without instruction, on Wednesday - Saturday from 1-4pm.

Eligibility: No experience required. Open to ages 14 and up. 

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight so the students may have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work from the final day of class.
