In the multi-faceted world of glass, Volcano Art Center is pleased to expand its offerings of glass art workshops with “Lampworking – An Introductory Class” on May 27 & 28: Saturday and Sunday from 2pm – 4pm.

Lampworking, also known as flameworking or torchworking, is a type of glasswork whereby the artist utilizes a torch or lamp to melt the glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is blown and shaped with tools and hand movements, forming beads, figurines, or other similar miniature artwork.

This class, designed for the student who has never touched a torch, is sure to spark your interest. Instructor Nash Adams-Pruitt will teach the regions of the flame and heat base for a solid foundation from which to build lampwork skills.  Nash will lead the class in creating sphere forms and pendants.

Class fee is $80/$75 for VAC members plus a $20 supply fee. Attendees are asked to wear covered shoes. Advance registration is required and this workshop will be limited to 4 adults.

Artist Nash Adams-Pruitt specializes in functional glass art. He has been working borosilicate glass at the torch for four years.

Two spaces available. Please call to register.
