What you'll learn in this lampworking class:

This workshop will explore the fundamental techniques of solid sculpting with a torch using borosilicate glass, images, and sketchbooks to develop your individual style. As you learn basic borosilicate sculpting skills, you will build a strong foundation for future compositions. 

We will discuss how the core techniques for making a fin on a fish, for example, can also be used for a dragon, bird, bee, etc. Through skill building exercises and group discussions we will explore the technical and conceptual aspects of the medium while cultivating ideas in flameworked glass.

Demonstrations and discussions will focus on:
  • Basic torch/tool safety
  • Basic glass movement
  • Adding bits
  • Various color applications
  • Drawing out soft lines and curves
  • Assembling parts to make larger sculptures
