Get Lit! Intro to Glassblowing

August 2nd - August 5th
Jason Minami |

Glass and light, what a perfect combination!  The students will be working in the hot shop to create blown forms to later be combined with their light source. Students will be guided through basic glass blowing techniques in which they can create forms in the hot shop. Students will be shown cold working techniques to combine their light source and glass piece. At the end of the course the students will leave with their own lighted glass work of art.

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.
