Volcano Art Center to Host Flameworking ClassesJune 22, 2019, 10:00 AM HST (Updated September 8, 2020, 3:29 PM)
Volcano Art Center (VAC) will host two sessions of introductory flameworking on Tuesday, July 2, and Tuesday, July 9, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Center’s Niʻaulani Campus in Volcano Village.
The classes are designed for beginner students with no experience. Instructor Nash Adams-Pruitt will teach foundations for flameworking—also called lampworking or torchworking—using a flame torch to melt and shape glass into art. Once in a molten state, the glass can be molded using tools and hand movements to create beads, figurines and other types of miniature artwork.
Adams-Pruitt will demonstrate how to create spherical forms and pendants. Students will leave the class with their own finished piece of art, and the basic skills to continue flameworking.
The class fee to attend is $80 ($75 for VAC members) plus a $40 supply fee. Attendees are asked to wear covered shoes.
Registration is required as space is limited to six adults. Register for one of the two workshop dates by calling VAC at (808) 967-8222 or visiting www.volcanoartcenter.org.
Volcano Art Center’s Niʻaulani Campus is located at 19-4074 Old Volcano Road in Volcano Village.
