Description

Artisan Workshop: Glass Flameworking Solid Sculpture

Are you fascinated by this old-world process that uses glass, flames and gravity? Are you just curious about trying out the Glass Shop? Join this 3 hour workshop (no experience required), and open to ages 12+ (for more details for our users aged 12-17, visit our family use policies HERE.)

Participants will receive a brief studio orientation, safety training and demonstration of projects. The rest is hands-on torch time creating your very own flameworked glass pieces. How is that done? Clear and colored borosilicate glass is heated and shaped in the two thousand degree flame of an oxygen-propane bench torch.

You can make:

  • tiny animal friends such as a mouse, fish or turtle

  • marbles

  • pendants

  • Murano-style hard candies

  • Or hanging ornaments

    **Closed-toe shoes and natural-fiber clothing are required
    **Please bring paper and pencil for sketching projects.

    This workshop is designed as a glass shop experience. It does not certify participants to further access the tool on their own. For Tool Trainings please visit our Eventbrite listings HERE. Private classes may also be made by appointment.
    For more details please contact the Glass Shop steward, Molly Jackson.
