Introduction To The Torch
September 19, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$135.00
Saturday September 19th – 10am-4pm
Minimum Students: 2 – Maximum 4
By taking this class, you will be introduced to basic torch safety, the most productive areas of the flame, how to work with mandrels while creating custom rods. You will be pulling stringers and mixing colors. Twisties are a fun feature to add to your arsenal of creating fusing elements. There will always be time for questions and answers. Students will be taking home torched elements that they can further add to their fused pieces or incorporate into a roll-up. All these elements will be made from 90COE and compatible glass. Bring safety glasses. Materials to be provided. Instructor: Carlyne Lynch – Bio: I combine glass powder, frit, enamel and lamp worked elements to create layered pieces. I still do some bead work but lately I have been making torch elements to embed in glass.
