SiNaCa Assistant: The primary function of a SiNaCa Assistant in the flame working studio is to follow the direction of the artist that is renting the studio and the use of the assistant. A studio rental with a SiNaCa Assistant is not intended to be a substitute for a Private Lesson. A renter must be able to pass a Skills Test/Renter Assessment in order to use a SiNaCa Assistant.

SiNaCa Consultant: The primary function of a SiNaCa Consultant in the flame working studio is teaching new skills or offering other direct advice on a project. A studio rental with a SiNaCa Consultant is not intended to substitute for a Private Lesson. A renter must be able to demonstrate basic kiln forming fundamental skills to use a SiNaCa Consultant.

Private Lessons: Private Lessons are an opportunity to learn fundamental skills in flame working outside of our standard curriculum. A student can work at their own pace to learn the fundamentals before moving on to working with a SiNaCa Consultant.
