The Glass Postcard (One Day Fusing)

October 5th - October 10th
Jane Bruce |

Discover what can happen when glass is used in a painterly manner. Students will create imagery and depth in a 4” x 6” glass “postcard” inspired by their own image, photo, or drawing, using a palette of clear and colored sheet glass together with glass powders. Basic coldworking techniques will be introduced to enhance and finish the postcards. Students are asked to bring an image, photo, or drawing to class that they wish to translate into glass. A short presentation on contemporary kilnformed glass will compliment hands-on work.

This class will meet on Saturday, October 5th 11am-5pm and Thursday, October 10th from 6-9pm for a coldworking session

What to Expect: You will create one glass postcard, as well as the skills to cut, assemble, and fuse glass. Class time will alternate between demonstration and work time. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No experience required, however, this class is also suitable for those who have taken introductory kilnformed glass classes. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down over several nights, 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 arianna@urbanglass.org if you have questions about the class or would like to arrange a payment plan.
