Exceeding Expectations: Pushing Soft Glass Further

August 9th - August 13th
Jenine Bressner |

How can we see things we've never seen before? By making them! Experimentation will be encouraged in this class, where we will explore the possibilities of flameworking with soft glass. Students will create texture and movement by composing a large piece from multiple flameworked glass elements, such as beads or small sculptures. We’ll play with unusual forms  then connect them with string or wire. We’ll also sculpt with household tools in new ways to unlock textures and patterns. If you are looking to take your soft glass skills to new heights, this is the class for you! 
Some previous flameworking experience is recommended, but not required. 

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.
