Basics of Flameworking
This two part class will be an overview of Flameworking, aka Lampworking:
Day One: BEADMAKING: We’ll learn the basics by making lampworked beads at the torch or “lamp.” This is a great way to get started with working hot glass in the flame. Day Two: BOROSILICATE GLASS: We will explore a different type of glass and many new techniques. We will make marbles, pendants, and small sculpture (time permitting).
