Try your hand at Flameworking with me at my studio in Surrey
Whether you would like to try it just for fun or if you have ideas to set up your own studio, you are sure to enjoy your time being guided through the making processes. Classes are currently 1 to 1.
The day will begin with everything you need to know about equipment, health and safety, materials and suppliers. We will then move on to some basic shaping of the clear glass, then some colour work. Basic equipment and most importantly specially coated safety glasses are provided. These glasses have the addition of a welder shade #3 for additional brightness reduction which offer Sodium Flare, UV, and IR protection.
Once you have a good understanding of how the glass moves we can play with some more complex glass techniques. Class notes will be provided but please bring a pen and note pad if you wish.
All glass used during your day will be annealed over night and available to you to collect the following day alternately I can send your pieces to you in the post.
Costs for a taster day session are £170, for a two day class is £250.
Classes start at 10am and run until 4 or 5pm depending on how you are feeling by the end of the day! Lunch and of course tea and biscuits are included, please let me know of any dietary requirements when booking your course.
As all classes are private, they do not run on specific dates – just send an email or call with your desired date to check availability.
Once a date has been agreed, you can pay for your class by sending me a deposit cheque and pay the balance 14 days prior to your course. Further information about your class and directions will then be emailed to you.
