From Hot to Cold and Back Again

February 19th - March 19th
Dorie Guthrie, Jane Bruce |

In this class students will move between the kilns and cold shop to utilize fusing, slumping and coldworking techniques to carve through colorful layers of thin and regular Bullseye sheet glass to create a number of small scale projects such as tiles, bowls and/or platters. Hands on work will be complemented by demonstrations and a short presentation on historical and contemporary kiln and cold worked glass. 

What to expect: Students will make several pieces (under 8” in any direction) over the course of the class. We will collectively plan for available kiln space to accommodate everyone fairly. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No experience required, however, this class is also suitable for those who have taken introductory kiln classes and wish to explore the possibilities of coldworking when used together with kilnformed glass. Open to ages 14 and up. 

Pick-up: The glass needs to fire, fuse, and 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. 

Class will skip March 12th
