Intro to Glassblowing: From Goop to Gorgeous-ish

September 5th - October 17th
Terri Sigler |

Departing from traditional approaches, this workshop prioritizes the understanding of glass as material and its unique characteristics over a fixation on end results.  The class invites hands-on exploration, encouraging participants to experiment with texture, form and some color. The emphasis is on cultivating an understanding of possibilities, creativity and personal expression rather than achieving perfection. Engage in both individual and collaborative projects, promoting teamwork and shared discovery. Take this class if you want to squish, pull, play, smush, twist, shape, and flop molten glass.

Class will not meet on September 26th.

What to Expect: 

The hot shop is a loud studio, and can get quite warm. Glassblowing takes repetition and practice - expect failures along with successes. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility:  No experience necessary. 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 if you have questions about the class or would like to arrange a payment plan.
