Intro to Boro: Glass Flowers

June 13th, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Richard Paz |

In this one day workshop we are going to delve into glass flowers! By using borosilicate glass and a focused flame we will learn to fuse petals onto a stem. This specific kind of glass is very resilient to temperature change making it possible to fabricate all of our parts before assembling them at our leisure! The small nature of the flame will allow us to add fine details to our details to our designs. A welcoming introduction if you this will be your first time using the torch!

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

Eligibility: Some experience with flameworking or beadmaking required. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight each week, 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.
