Flameworking is a type of glasswork that uses a torch to melt and shape glass. Once the glass is heated to a molten state it can be formed and manipulated with tools and movements. In this class you will learn the different steps to flameworking, which include: preparing the mandral, heating the rod and mandrel, shaping the glass, decorating the glass, striking, and annealing.
