More about the UGH! Series:

Got a glass problem you're not sure how to solve? UGH! Need some technical guidance on your project, but don’t know where to look? UGH! The UrbanGlass Hotline (UGH!) gives students the opportunity to submit questions to our expert instructors about the glass processes they use to create dynamic works in glass. Each session, hosted on Zoom, begins with a short introduction to the teaching artist, followed by an interactive discussion about techniques, concepts, and problem solving. Students will have the opportunity to email questions up to a week in advance to guide the conversation, as well as participating in a live Q&A session.
