Unfurling Your Dreams: Making Sheet in the Hot Shop

July 12th - July 16th
Liesl Schubel, David King |

Sheet glass production has a long history of experimental techniques. From drawing glass up in a tube to floating glass on a bed of molten tin, production methods on the industrial scale have varied widely over time. This class will explore traditional, handmade processes for creating custom sheet glass, such as the rondell and cylinder methods, plus some experimenting. Making your own sheet glass means you can control the thickness, color, and pattern. It is a great way to gain more skills in the hot shop and expand your sheet glass pallet for stained glass, fusing, and cold construction projects.

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.

Liesl Schubel

Liesl Schubel was born in Ontario, Canada in 1990. She moved twice while she was young: first to British countryside, then American. Life in England brought Liesl close to her mother’s upbringing, as Canada had done for her father’s. The memories and landscape of these homes hold deep, sustaining importance in Liesl’s life and practice. As a queer woman, an artist, and a city dweller from rural roots, the complexity of home and of familial histories, relationships, and disputes remain a constant source of inspiration in her practice.
