Introduction to Flameworking

Introduction to Flameworking

September 1 - 6, 2014
All Levels
One-Week Session

This course will present a wide range of flameworking techniques using borosilicate glass. We will embark on an evolution through glassmaking, beginning with marbles (single cell); through fungus, aquatics, and small land mammals; and ending with the human form. Using glass tubing, we will create small hollow vessels, beads, and goblets. Glass lathe instruction will be available if you are interested. You will return home with enough small projects and ideas to further develop and sell your work. There will also be discussion about studio design, equipment, and safety for the hobbyist, as well as for the intermediate flameworking artist. No glassworking experience is required; advance students are also welcome.
