This class is intended to introduce the student to the ancient art of Flameworking! Flameworking is the manipulation of molten glass using a localized heat source, such as a torch. In this 1.5 hour class we will explore its modern incarnation using gas/oxy torches and graphite and steel tools to produce marbles, figurines, pendants or beads. Students will each have their own workstation, torch , tools, and all the supplies and glass provided for them. Topics covered include: Basic safety and equipment operation, fundamentals of hot glass manipulation, glass color usage and surface decoration, and more! All glass items will need to cool slowly over night in a kiln and will be available for pick up the following day or may be shipped for a small shipping fee of $5.00
