Flameworking is an old-world process that sculpts and melts glass using heat,gravity and the flame of a bench torch. In this three hour training students will get a tools and materials introduction, safety training and shop etiquette, and direct hands-on learning that covers basic techniques.This training is a certification process and with a Technocopia membership, participants are then allowed access to using the torches themselves. Closed-toe shoes and natural fibered clothing are required. Class sizes are limited to 2 people at this time, however one to one tool trainings, classes and workshops can be made by appointment. For more details and to schedule a one to one session, please contact Molly Jackson.

This tool is available for family use! Any youth between the ages of 12-17 may take this class with a participating adult (adults must also purchase a ticket). For ourstudent registration form and for class policies, please visit: http://technocopia.org/tool-training/
