Want to check out what Flame-Working is all about? Thursday evening, March 29th 7pm demonstrations will be held in mandrel-wound glass bead making. Afterwards visitors are invited to try making a bead (or 2, depending on popularity). Beads made this evening can be picked up the following Open Studio.
Evening demonstrations introduce the basics of mandrel-wound glass beadmaking by the process of flameworking (lampworking) shaping glass at a bench-mounted, surface-mix oxygen/propane torch. Safety is discussed, tools, terminology of glass, and process.
