Glass blowing, flameworking

In my practice as a glass flameworker, I take rods and tubes of coloured and clear borosilicate glass (Pyrex) and melt and manipulate them in a high temperature flame to create unique glass gifts including pendants, small vessels and sculptural glass art. I can provide a variety of bespoke tuition/workshop options, from novice to advanced glass working techniques. These are offered on a one-to-one basis or in small groups (three max) tailored to your requirements.

Qualifications & experience
Over the last five years, I have conducted a number of bespoke flameworking courses for students who had little or no previous experience with glass. In 2012, I was teaching assistant at the Stourbridge International Glass Festival (Bandu) Master Classes. I was also invited to provide flameworking demonstration at the glass festival as part of the weekend programme of events to showcase talented glass artists from all over the world.

Your teaching has opened up a whole new world of glass to me and I can?t wait to come back - Dee Elgie
