Glassblowing Projects (August-September)

August 11th - September 15th
Mike Jess |

The projects courses are designed for students who wish to explore specific projects or ideas in a process that they already have some experience with, but are still looking for guidance from an instructor. This is a perfect option if you have been out of the studio for the past year but are looking for an opportunity to have technical support while working towards a new idea. Bring a few sketches or ideas to brainstorm on the first class as a starting point. Students should be familiar and comfortable with the basic foundations of glassblowing operations. This class will challenge students to work faster and smarter to achieve their goals with hot glass, building upon your existing foundation of skills to broaden your scope of what is possible. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration.
