Kilncasting Projects

September 8th - October 13th
Dorie Guthrie |

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 seeking 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. 

This class will provide demonstrations to further students’ knowledge of the kilncasting process, and dive deep into writing the perfect kiln schedules for specific objects, including the differences between led crystal and soda-lime glass. Students will also learn rubber mold making techniques to produce multiples of one object, and fundamental coldworking skills to finish their designs. 

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

As of September 7, proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine must be shown for in-person classes and studio access. Proof of vaccination* can be shown via:

  • CDC Paper Card
  • Digital Record or Copy of Vaccination Card
  • NYC COVID Safe App
  • Excelsior Pass

Please bring your vaccine record for a visual check on the first day of class.

*Any WHO approved vaccines are accepted as part of the city’s order.
