Flameworking, also known as lampworking, is a glassmaking process where the artist uses the flame of a torch to melt colored or clear glass rods. Once molten, the artist shapes the glass using gravity and tools. You will be guided through the process of using the torch and glass rods to create tiny glass pumpkins and ghosts. This class will present a comprehensive introduction to flameworking with an overview of safety issues, costs, and equipment needs.
