Level 1 Classes
Melanie is a master flamework sculpture artist who resides in St. Petersburg, FL. She will be teaching a flameworking class at the Morean Museum starting in January, 2022. This weekly, 3 hour session for 4 weeks, is an introduction to solid, flameworked sculpture techniques and torch work. She will introduce you to set up safety procedures, materials and glass, how to use gravity with use of arm and hand positioning, and the beginning techniques to make a small sculpture. Everyone will be allowed to work and progress at their own pace, but by the end of the 4 week session you will have the opportunity to hopefully make a few of your own pieces to take home!
