Welcome to the Wonderful World of Flameworking
Classes and Open Studio have been temporarily suspended. Please check back for new class dates and available studio times.
There are two schools of thought with torchwork – one is soft glass or soda-lime glass. Beads have been made using soft glass since the 5th century BC. The second is hard glass, or borosilicate (Pyrex is a common trade name) – this glass is very clear and can take quick temperature changes.
The Flame Shop is where a torch is used to melt glass, beads, marbles, pendants, vases, goblets and, where sculptures are created.
