Ed Slawson will be teaching a two day workshop:
Beginning Borosilicate Glass -- Transition from Soft Glass
at Playing with Fire! -- Rockland, Maine --

Please contact us if you are interested, and we will work on scheduling this class...

$280 + $50 materials fee (boro color and clear glass), lunch included.
Max. class size: 6
9:30am - 4:30pm plus 1.5 hours each evening for torch time.
 
Beginning Borosilicate Glass — This is an intensive two day workshop designed as a transition class for students who have had some experience working with soft glass and have a desire to enter the world of hard glass. Students will work both on-mandrel and off-mandrel and will learn to make a variety of beads and pendants. A hands-on class — we will explain and then demo various techniques and then work with students to perfect them. A low student/teacher ratio provides individual attention and ensures that the student will leave with a good foundation in working with borosilicate glass.
