Flameworking Glass: Boro Basics

Fridays 9 am to Noon (Offered most Fridays year-round)
Fee: $110
Cash or check
Limit of six students per class

Discover the thrill of working with molten glass in this one-day introduction to the art of 
flameworking! Flamework is the process of melting glass greg hofftubes and rods in front of an oxygen/propane torch. Flameworking borrows many of the same techniques used in the hot shop, but in a much smaller and intimate setting. The craft allows for a high level of detail, perfect for glass bead making and sculptural work. In this beginner level class, we will explore the basics of working with borosilicate glass in front of the flame. Students can expect to take home several pieces of their own creation!

Supplies will be provided by the instructor and are included in the cost of class.

Payments are made payable by cash or check (no cards accepted) directly to the artist. Please make checks payable to Greg Hoff.

For more information, please contact Brandy via email or at 251-981-2787, or Greg Hoff via email
