UGH! Torchworking

February 17th, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
David Licata |

This UrbanGlass Hotline is going on a field trip to artist and instructor David Licata's home studio! David works in a wide variety of flameworking techniques, and will answer your questions on working solid with borosilicate glass. David will give a brief tour of his equipment set up, then will jump on the torch to demonstrate live. Demonstrations can range from natural, figurative sculptures to chainmail, clear and color, so submit your questions in advance to help guide the discussion.  Come troubleshoot some of your torchworking dilemmas with David!

Note: The goal of these conversations is purely information sharing. Quotes, rates, jobs, etc. will not be provided as part of this evening. 

If this price is prohibitive, please reach out to to talk through additional options.

More about the UGH! Series:

Got a glass problem you're not sure how to solve? UGH! Need some technical guidance on your project, but don’t know where to look? UGH! The UrbanGlass Hotline (UGH!) gives students the opportunity to submit questions to our expert instructors about the glass processes they use to create dynamic works in glass. Each session, hosted on Zoom, begins with a short introduction to the teaching artist, followed by an interactive discussion about techniques, concepts, and problem solving. Students will have the opportunity to email questions up to a week in advance to guide the conversation, as well as participating in a live Q&A session.

This workshop will be held entirely over Zoom, and class times are listed in Eastern Standard Time. To register for a free zoom account, visit
