Into to Boro: Chains

December 5th, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Starr Eaddy |

In this 3 hour intensive learn all the skills needed to make chains using borosilicate glass rods and a torch in the flame shop! We will cover cutting glass, get introduced to the tools and equipment, and learn how to use heat and gravity to our advantage in the shaping and formation of our glass chains. Beginners welcome! Come ready to learn and have fun!

What to Expect: Flameworking requires a little practice at heat control with the torch to create successful chains. After demonstrations, expect to make between 2 - 6 successful objects in this class, and a couple failures, while gaining confidence and skill in the studio. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 12 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight then be carefully removed from the mandrels, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work. 

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration. 

We recommend registering for classes early to reserve your spot! We base materials, and teacher needs off of student enrollment. Early registration not only guarantees your spot in class, but also helps to ensure the class will run. Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled within two weeks of the start date of class. Contact our Registrar of Education, Ari Eshoo, at if you have questions about the class or would like to arrange a payment plan.
