Intro to Glassblowing (May)

May 14th - May 21st
Alex Demmerle |

Interested in learning the ancient art of glassblowing? Look no further than this weekend workshop! Spread over two Saturdays, this beginner-friendly class will cover the fundamentals of working with furnace glass: gathering, shaping, blowing, etc. Collaborating in teams, students will learn to use tools to manipulate and control the molten glass and explore basic color application techniques. Every student can expect to leave this two-day workshop with the ability to create simple functional forms of their own design along with an enhanced appreciation of the rich history of glassmaking.

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.
