Sage 3

March 28, 9 am-4:30 pm                               This one day workshop offers you to try your hand at working with molten glass using a oxygen propane glass working torch, hand tools, and colored rods of soft glass. Flameworking, also known as Lampworking, demonstrations will be coupled with hands-on exercises and plenty of individual attention. Discussions will touch on the properties of glass and some of the elaborate history of glass beads, as well as studio set up and safety. This is also a good refresher course for those who have had some experience but haven’t made beads in a while.
