Middle School Camp! Wearable Sculpture: Intro to Glass Beadmaking (FREE - STEM)

April 10th - April 14th

Jewelry and accessories are a decorative language used to communicate across cultures throughout history. Students will create their own wearable glass beads and 3D sculptures by melting and shaping glass rods in the flame of a table torch through the ancient art of flameworking. Using heat, gravity, and a simple set of tools, students will learn how to safely operate the table torch. Working up close with the molten material, students will discover how to pinch, poke, stretch, and weld glass into bold, vibrant, and colorful forms of adornment. 

This is a FREE camp offered in collaboration with STEM Matters NYC, a Dept. of Education program that partners with cultural institutions to provide enrichment programs during spring and summer break for NYC students in grades K-12. Students are selected through an application process, with priority given to students who attend Title I schools. Please apply here: https://spep.libguides.com/STEMprograms
