This October, UrbanGlass in Brooklyn will host a one-day workshop with architect James Carpenter. James' work with UrbanGlass began more than two decades ago, when he worked in our studios to create unique projects in glass. The class "Light: Beyond Transparency" requires no previous knowledge about glass processes and techniques, but will include time in the studio learning about how the material is manipulated.

"Light Beyond Transparency" will take place on October 18th, 10am-5pm. This one-day workshop will focus on observation and explore a conceptual approach to manifesting these observations in the built environment. Carpenter will start the day by presenting a range of light phenomena and their causes after which participants will form groups and spend time outside making their own observations and recording them using methods of choice. Carpenter will then use examples of his work to demonstrate how close observations of light can be a foundation for manifesting light in the urban realm. Student groups will conceive and develop concepts using this process and resulting in a review of final presentations by Carpenter, a visiting critic, and fellow participant groups.
