Glass B Summer Session 4

Glass Summer Session 4
July 4-15, 2021
Heather Trimlett
Flameworking A to Z

Working with soft glass at the torch, we’ll investigate countless options for bead design, twisted cane composition, and distinct application methods. Students will be introduced to disk beads, glass buttons, working with large mandrels, and coldworking and challenge themselves, through a series of tips and tricks, to conquer these methods. Demonstrations will support the learning process in detail, allowing students to apply techniques at their own pace. Students can expect to advance their skill set, work more precisely by mastering the fine art of heat control, and increase their level of confidence and consistency. All levels. Flame studio.
