From Clicks to Cups: Prototypes and Blow Molds

October 22nd - October 26th
Jessi Moore, Malcolm Kriegel |

Are you interested in customized moldz for the hot shop? Boy do we have the class for you!

 

Join us on a journey into the world of rapid prototyping with inexpensive materials! We will begin learning how to take a simple profile and create a digital file to 3D print. Once printed we will move into the mold studio to create the reusable investment mold before taking those into the hot shop to make our vessels. We will finish out the class covering basics finishing techniques for the mold blown objects, but most of all we will be having fun.

What to Expect: Students will work together and learn to manipulate molten glass (2000 degrees). Safety, 3d printing, blow molds, and tools will all be covered in a fun and exciting environment. The hot shop is a loud studio, and can get quite warm. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

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

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight, so the 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. 

We recommend registering for classes early to reserve your spot! We base materials, and teacher needs off of student enrollment. Early registration not only guarantees your spot in class, but also helps to ensure the class will run. Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled within two weeks of the start date of class. Contact our Registrar of Education, Ari Eshoo, at arianna@urbanglass.org if you have questions about the class or would like to arrange a payment plan.
