Instructor: Joanne Andrighetti
Flameworking is a great way to experience the thrill of shaping molten glass using a small torch. In this introductory course, you will learn the basics of melting borosilicate glass rods to create a variety of objects such as small sculptures, pendants and simple ornaments.
Borosilicate glass is known for its clarity, sculptural quality, and durability. Flameworked objects are generally created without mandrels.
You will begin learning with clear glass and later add colours. You will also learn about the nature of glass, tools and terminology and glass safety. No experience required. All materials are included in the cost.
