Glass Rings: Form, Function & Adornment
Learn the art of flameworking with borosilicate glass while making sculptural rings. Lessons will first cover safe studio practices and then progress to the process of melting, stretching, and sculpting glass rods to create jewelry. Explore finishing techniques such as liquid lusters and dichroic slides to adorn the surface of the glass. Students will come away with sparkling rings to wear or share and a taste of glass sculpting. Supply fee does not include glass rods which can be purchased in class. All levels welcome.
