What you'll do
Lampworking (also known as torchworking) is basically miniature glassblowing. Each student will work on their own torch to create a unique and stylish pendant, cool marble, unique figurine, or little beads. I'll explain the safety rules and show you how to make the project, then I'll help you make yours. This class is listed for a specific time, but I'll gladly schedule your session anytime upon request.
I've been working and teaching as a Glass Artist in Chicago for 15+ years. My classes are a friendly place to learn the exciting techniques of Glass Art. I'm an articulate and endearing teacher who will give you a crash course interweaving scientific and historical facts. Each project is different and I'll make sure they all turn out great!
Water, Fire, Glass, Etc. Safety glasses will be provided.
