Flame Working


Experience Flame Working

Price: $100 | Class Size: Min 3 – Max 4 | Ages 14+ | Prerequisite: None

The perfect class for your first experience working with glass in front of a torch. Participants are given the opportunity to work with our instructors to learn about the equipment, tools and materials used to transform raw glass into a memorable experience. When you are working in the flame working studio, you are working with colored and clear glass rods or tubes in front of an open, gas-fueled torch. You melt and shape the glass using fire, tools and gravity. In this 3-hour flame working workshop, each participant will demonstrate the basic techniques of flame working to make several items. You will work with our instructors to create a seasonal item out of borosilicate glass and a couple of colorful beads to string with Moretti-Effetre (soft) glass. Items created will be ready for pick up in the SiNaCa Studios gallery five business days after made.
