This workshop will explore unusual approaches to flameworked glass. We’ll cover a range of glass forming techniques, from the lathe to the bench, along with unconventional coloring methods and mirroring. In addition to basic flameworking skills, students will learn to form glass with the lathe and fabricate graphite to make specific shapes of glass. We’ll have constructive critiques and discuss design, composition, concept development, mirroring methods, fun, and life. All levels. Code F01GB
