Event description

Description

Flameworking is an old-world process that sculpts and blows glass using heat, gravity and the flame of a bench torch. In this three hour training students will get an introduction to shop tools and materials, safety training and shop etiquette, and direct hands-on learning that covers basic techniques.



This training is a prerequisite for general member use of the glass shop.

Closed-toe shoes and natural fibered clothing are required.



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

The glass shop and it's associated classes are for adults aged 18 or older only.
