Learn how to make solid borosilicate glass chains with Cha Cha Chainz! In this flameworking class, you will explore techniques for melting and bending clear and colored rods to create beautiful, wearable works of art. We will discuss symmetrical connections, color applications and tips to keep your chains from cracking by inspecting areas of stress and tension within your links. Whether this is your first time working with glass or you’d like to fine tune your chain making game, all skill levels are welcome and encouraged to join.

What to Expect: Class will be divided by demonstrations, individual instruction and practice time. Techniques taught in this class are designed to give students the confidence to continue advancing their skills independently. 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, 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.
