Headed for Houston

Example by Nina "Sam" Hibler
of the techniques students in will learn  in
Flamwork for the Glass Fuser
I'm headed for Houston, Texas with Nina "Sam" Hibler of Dream Fire Glass for her two day workshop on Flamework for the Glass Fuser March 6-7 at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC). Come join us and play with fire in this exciting workshop.  Participants will learn how to make flameworked components for fused-glass including simple stringer, ribbon cane, twisted cane, dichroic stringer and cane, and simple murrini.  This is a great workshop for the beginner to get experience on the torch or an intermediate glass worker who wants to add a new element to their kilnformed work. I'll be on hand to contribute my kilnforming expertise related how time and temperature effect those elaborate  flameworked components in the kiln. After learning these techniques on the torch, students create create  full or tack fused projects in the kilns using the elements they learned to make in class.

While at the HCCC I am also looking forward to:
Not going to be in Houston at that time. Sam teaches this same workshop from time to time right here in San Antonio at Wired Designs Studio. Check the workshop calender for available dates of this and other exciting flameworking and fused glass workshops.
