Enrol in Glass Flamework Workshop
Course Code: ARTS0699
Flameworking is a method for shaping through the use of a torch. You can heat glass to a molten state and then sculpt, blow and manipulate it, creating highly detailed and colourful glass objects. This workshop is divided into two parts: you will learn the basics of operating a flameworking torch safely and see demonstrations in the tools and techniques of bead making and small glass sculpture. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity for hands-on practice, creating a number of small flameworked objects. There will also be discussion regarding some of the possibilities in pursuing flameworking further. Using a torch is a relatively inexpensive way for you to work with molten glass and is commonly set up in home studios. This workshop is intended to provide an introductory experience for this exciting medium. No previous glass experience is necessary.
