IT’S TIME TO ENCOUNTER SOMETHING NEW
GLASS BLOWING | Hot shop
GET READY TO BE BLOWN AWAY
Glass blowing is an incredibly satisfying art form perfect for creating and expressing yourself as an individual. Students learn to move and manipulate glass in the hot shop with fun projects you’ll be proud to show off. We offer a variety of exciting classes to help you build a foundation and reach your full potential in glass.
FUSING THE LOVE OF GLASS AND FIRE
In our kiln forming studio, artists work with glass in its solid state to create and design objects that will be fused together in an electric kiln. By layering sheets of glass, glass frits, stringers, and powders together, you can create practical and beautiful pieces you will be proud to show off.
GET FIRED UP FOR FLAME WORKING
In the flame working studio, we use a gas-fueled torch and gravity to melt and shape colored glass rods and tubes. With just a torch and a few tools, artists can create everything from elegant beads to complex sculptural and blown work. We can help you light the fire of creativity.
CHILL OUT WITH COLD WORKING
Cold working is the process of altering glass without using heat. Methods include grinding, carving, engraving, polishing, sandblasting, and other techniques and are used by glass artists to put the finishing touch on their work. In our classes, we teach students how to use the basic equipment to make their own glass art stone-cold marvelous.
TRANSFORM RAW GLASS INTO A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE
Be a happy camper without ever leaving town. SiNaCa Studios offers camps for just about everyone — adults, kids, educators, home schoolers, scouts, or your entire family! Our day camps are designed to get you involved in three disciplines of glass with enthusiastic and talented camp counselors creating projects tailored just for you. Isn’t it about time for a new artistic adventure?
CELEBRATING EVERY SEASON IN STYLE
For every glass art project, there is a season. Every season at SiNaCa, we have new and exciting projects in all three of our studios. From chilling sugar skulls and snow globes in our kiln forming studio to sculpted glass furnace flowers and flame worked Santa hats, we always have something fun up our sleeve to ring in a new day.
