An introduction to hot glass sculpting

Come for a days Lampworking with Elizabeth at her Studio in Angmering, West Sussex. 

In this class you will be working with Borosilicate glass, learning the basics of sculpting on an oxygen-propane torch.

The Format

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. Please bring a camera, 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 day session are ¬£225. 

Classes start at 10am and run until 4pm. Tea and biscuits are included but please bring your own lunch. We have a fridge and reheating facilities available for you to use.
