The torch studio includes torchworking (a/k/a lampworking) and neon. These classes are a little less intimidating than the hot shop. When flames are involved, they are smaller. Most of these classes involve making glass beads. We work with small, table-top mounted torches. Using small rods of glass (about the size of a pencil), you will use the torch to get the tip of your glass molten and then twirl the molten glass around a steel mandrel to make your bead. You can add dots, stripes, and textures to make your beads unique.
