Flameworking Two Ways
For the curious beginner, learn about the pros and cons of working with soft glass and borosilicate (hard) glass. Spend the first day making beads and small sculpture from soft glass. Feel how the molten glass moves and flows, what it can do and what the limitations are. On the second day, try the same with boro. Feel the difference in your hands of how to shape and sculpt the stiffer material. Learn about COE and annealing schedules for each glass. You’ll leave the class with a new understanding of flameworking basics. No supply fee; students can purchase glass rods during class based on individual usage.
