 Flameworking, also called lampwork or torchwork, is a type of glasswork that uses a gas fueled torch to melt rods and tubes of clear and colored glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. The art form began in the first century in ancient Syria, then became widely practiced in Murano, Italy, in the 14th century. Flameworking differs from glassblowing in that glassblowing uses a blowpipe to inflate a glass blob known as a gob or gather, whereas flameworking manipulates glass either using tools, gravity or by blowing directly into the end of a glass tube.  
This class introduces participants to the art of glass beadmaking. Basic techniques will be demonstrated. Participants will create their own decorative beads to take home the same day.
