Bugs and Blooms: Sculpting Small in Borosilicate

August 20th - August 21st
Jessica Tsai |

In this class we will learn techniques to sculpt simple insects and flowers, from sketching to prep to assembly. Learn how to use the flame and basic tools to create small components: petals, leaves, wings and legs. We will go over flame control and the fundamentals of hot seals and bridging. Bring a sketchbook and ideas! Prior flameworking experience is preferred but all experience levels are welcome.

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration. Our top priority is keeping our community safe. At UrbanGlass, masks are still required for all ages 2 and older (we recommend a KN95 or KF94 mask). Temperature checks continue at the security desk when entering through the Rockwell entrance. We ask that if you were recently directly exposed to COVID-19 and are awaiting test results that you do not come to class, and we will work with you to find another class placement or refund you the class fee. Current policies are subject to change based on additional information, including the city's new alert levels page.
