Event description

Description

**This workshop is followed by an optional 1 hour certification class for newcomers interested in using the Glass Shop as a Technocopia member. Experienced flameworkers may contact the instructor to schedule a certification class only.**

Are you fascinated by this old-world process that uses glass, flames and gravity? Are you just curious about trying out the Glass Shop? In this three-hour Artisan Workshop you will begin by receiving a brief studio orientation, safety training and demonstration of the project. The rest is hands-on torch time creating your very own solid hanging ornaments. How is that done? Clear glass rods are heated and shaped in the two thousand degree flame of an oxygen-propane bench torch. You can make several clear glass hanging ornaments of various shape combinations. Your new creations will be annealed in a kiln overnight and can be taken home the next day. Please bring paper and pencil for sketching projects. Closed-toe shoes and natural fibered clothing are required.

One to one tool trainings and classes can be made by appointment. For more details please contact Molly Jackson.

PLEASE NOTE: The glass shop and it's associated classes are for adults aged 18 or older only. All non-member students please fill out this one-time registration form prior to attending a class. Review our class cancellations and refund policies here.
