The unique experience lasts 2 hours . I will show and explain the basic flameworking technique. After an introduction about glass and safety, you will get a chance to work on a torch. Under my supervision, you will get the opportunity to make a glass blown vase and/or pendant. All your glass art will be annealed in a kiln for you. Pieces will be available for pick up or shipping one week after the class has finished. International shipping is included.
Through my scientific background I discovered a passion for glass and flameworking almost a decade ago. Since then, fire, glass tubes and rods have become my everyday companions. I’ve discovered that working with glass can be an immersive and meditative experience. Flameworking, much like art therapy, can open doors to self-discovery, growth and fulfillment. Playing with the flame brings me deep joy and satisfaction which I would like to share with you and have you experience during your time in Zagreb.
