A great combination class to explore variety in the flame shop. You will work with both Moretti (soft) and Borosilicate (hard) glass while learning the fundamentals of flameworking. Begin with a solid rod of glass, melt it into a molten ball to create and manipulate little treasures in the flame such as beads, pendants, marbles and sculptures. Over the course of 8 weeks, color application, hand control and annealing will be covered, as well as one-on-one troubleshooting.
The class fee includes 2 hours of open studio time per student to be used during the same class session. This will help students become familiar with the studio and learn the simple process of studio rental outside of class hours.
