Flame ON!, Thursday afternoons $130 per person, includes materials- 4 student max
This workshop introduces students to the basics of mandrel-wound glass beadmaking by the process of flameworking (lampworking) shaping glass at a bench-mounted, surface-mix oxygen/propane torch. Safety is discussed, tools, terminology of glass, and process. Each student will have access to a torch and will melt and form glass using a variety of hand tools.
This is the chance to experience working molten glass! While not a "product-oriented" workshop, there will be time for the student to make a small, but satisfying stash of colorful beads which are annealed overnight, and cleaned the following class. Class fee includes all materials
No experience necessary! Ages 14 on up are welcome!
