Teen After School: Intermediate Flame Working (12 Wk)
Class size limit: 9
Returning teens will push their flame working skills and jewelry design to the next level. Students will delve into techniques
such as making and mixing frits, surface imagery on beads and writing with stringers, using silver and copper leaf, blowing
and applying shards, and creating twisted canes. Students will practice more blown techniques, working towards small vessels
and perfume bottles. Demonstrations will alternate with working time. Students will be encouraged to do research at home
about other flame working artists and techniques that inform their ideas. Their artistic development will be embodied in
their final pieces, which will be reviewed by their teacher and a guest critic, at the end of the course.
