One Day Flameworking - Pendants

February 4th, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Ben Barocas |

In this class students will learn the basics of melting borosilicate glass and creating their own glass pendants at the torch. There will be an introduction to the tools, supplies and equipment used, demonstrations of pendant techniques, as well as plenty of torch time and assistance to be able to create your own wearable piece of glass art.

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 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 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.
