Form and Color: Intermediate Glassblowing

February 7th - March 13th
George Dielman |

This class will be geared towards intermediate glass blowers. By focusing on basic forms; spheres, cylinders, cones and bowls, we will learn about smart setups and using heat to blow glass smoothly and efficiently in conjunction with basic color applications (overlays). 

What to Expect: Students can expect both demos and practice time in class. Be ready to watch demonstrations closely, ask questions, and spend practice time working through what you just saw. Working quickly, with lots of repetition, is key to getting better.

Eligibility: Previous glassblowing experience required. You should have 1-2 years of experience, and feel comfortable gathering and moving through the steps of making a basic cup. Don’t feel ready yet? Check out our more introductory classes to build your skills. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: Work will need to be annealed, or cooled, overnight after each class. You may return during the week for work, or wait til the next class. If anything is made on the last day of class, 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.
