Introduction to Flameworking (two 4 hour sessions)
This class is designed to create a better understanding of working with glass with a torch. In the first session we will create a foundation of how to properly weld and fuse glass together with a torch. By using this technique we may expand and create small sculptures of your own design. The second session will begin to cover blowing techniques, starting with how to prep tubing into usable sections and moving on to making small blown vessels.
