Ian will be returning in 2017 to lead his ever popular flameworking course aimed at those who wish to experience and learn some basic elements of working glass in an open flame, (Lampworking/Flameworking). It will appeal to the beginner as much as those with previous experience. The material used will be borosilicate glass and be mostly clear tubing and rod of various sizes. Objectives will be set at the start of each day with the final day seeing a cumulative result involving teamwork recognising the individual’s progress.
Certificates will be awarded to all successful candidates. Click here to read the course outline!
