Flame-worked Glass

(Single Afternoon Workshop for those who have selected 'Mix it Up or 'Retreat Mode' for their Afternoon Elective Stream)*

This elective offers the rare opportunity to spend time exploring hot glass on a small scale by heating glass rods and tubes over a gas torch. Participants will be introduced to basic flame-working techniques with a focus on small solid-worked pieces. We’ll have time to explore and experiment with ideas, colours and techniques as we get familiar with the feeling of manipulating glass over a flame with a range of tools.

Borosilicate glass is a ‘hard’ type of glass that offers the maker many options from small blown and solid works to wearable pieces. It’s a very forgiving type of glass and perfect for the beginner. Participants will be encouraged to think about how glass can be used in creative pursuits as such a unique material.

*Please note each workshop attracts an additional fee of $30 per person to help cover the cost of gas, electricity and specialised tools and materials.

Sarah Dingwall spends her days flame-working pieces at her studio on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. She has long been interested in the properties that are unique to glass - completing her bachelor of Fine Art/Glass at Monash University in 2009. Sarah is constantly inspired by the challenges and opportunities that glass offers, and has most recently enjoyed combining flame-worked glass with found objects from nature.
