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.
In this class you will be learning to make glass beads. Traditional glass beads originated back from the Venitian Renaissance in Italy. Flameworking later became widely practiced in Italy during the 14th century.
