Intro to Kilncasting: Press Molds

March 18th - April 29th
Nisha Bansil |

In this class students will learn how to make a variety of molds for kilncast glass projects. We will start with open faced casting from folded paper and we will move on to two part press molds, which allow us to explore multi-sided detail and thinner forms. We will discuss how heat and glass selection affects the final product. 

This class skips April 8th

What to expect: Students should expect to leave the class with 3 samples and 1 to 2 larger projects (under 8” in any direction). We will be casting primarily with bullseye clear cullet, white, and gray, and will have access to whatever additional colored frit or powder is available. If you have a specific need for a certain glass color, you may need to purchase materials in advance or during class. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 14 and up.

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