Structural Flameworking

All Skill Levels 1-week Intensive Class

Starting with basic Borosilicate flameworking techniques, we will focus on building structures in solid glass. Using a kiln shelf and working directly from scale drawings, you will learn to construct complex forms from small motifs. Beginners welcome. You can expect to learn the fundamentals of Borosilicate flameworking as well as techniques more specific to this method of building. Bring grand ideas, a pencil, a drawing compass and expect to learn through demos, illustrated hand-outs, slide shows and hands on practice.

ALL SKILL LEVELS: This class is appropriate, useful and enjoyable to a Newbie, Ace, or any level in between.
