Artisan Workshop: Glass Flameworking Solid Sculpture
VIEW SCHEDULE AND REGISTER
Instructor: Molly Jackson
Are you fascinated by this old-world process that uses glass, flames and gravity? Are you just curious about trying out the Glass Shop? Join this 3 hour workshop (no experience required), and open to ages 12+ (for more details for our users aged 12-17, visit our family use policies HERE.)
Participants will receive a brief studio orientation, safety training and demonstration of projects. The rest is hands-on torch time creating your very own flameworked glass pieces. How is that done? Clear and colored borosilicate glass is heated and shaped in the two thousand degree flame of an oxygen-propane bench torch.
You can make:
tiny animal friends such as a mouse, fish or turtle
Murano-style hard candies
Or hanging ornaments
**Closed-toe shoes and natural-fiber clothing are required
**Please bring paper and pencil for sketching projects.
Tool Trainings and private classes can be made by appointment.
For more details please contact the Glass Shop steward, Molly Jackson.
