Our PipeMaking courses are currently TBD sign ups. Once we get our minimum enrollment for the course, we will schedule all the classes. This way we can ensure that classes aren't ever cancelled due to low enrollment!
We just reached our minimum enrollment for PipeMaking Series 1, so if you want to get on board, just click that button. Go on, you know you want to. Classes are being taught at 10am on Monday 9/15, Wednesday 9/17, Monday 9/22, and Wednesday 9/24.
This first series is built for beginning students who really want to make pipes. Each class is 3 hours long, consisting of 2 hours of teacher/student time and an hour of practice.
PipeMaking 1.1 - Rod Marbles - This class starts you off with several solid rod marble techniques.
PipeMaking 1.2 - Implosion & One-Hitter - Now we move into hollow work. You will make an implosion marble with tubing, then move into making your very first pipe, a one-hitter.
PipeMaking 1.3 - Spoon - This class is all about the spoon pipe.
PipeMaking 1.4 - Introduction to Glass Joints* - Learn how to make slides, domes, etc., using ground glass joints.
*For all classes needing ground joints: One pair of joints will be included in the class and there are more available to purchase if needed.
We can't believe it's September already! We've been busily preparing for our first annual event: Seattle PipeMasters Collab and we are looking forward to a day of kicking back, relaxing, and ... blowing some glass.
So listen up, we hold Community Day every 2nd Saturday of the month from 12-6pm. It's FREE and open to anyone 18+, no matter your skill level. We offer safety lessons & demonstrations for beginners before they hop on a torch. Nate Dizzle, EBZ, and other glassblowers will be giving demos throughout the day. If you have been curious about torch work, now is your chance to satisfy your craving.
Community Day is our way of giving back to our very supportive community, so we hope that you can join us for this fun day and also keep supporting our school & studio by taking some classes or renting some torch time. This is our NINTH month of business, and our 9th Community Day.
Jewelry Series 1
Learn different approaches to pendant loops, making pairs, various color and pattern techniques, properly shaping and sizing and more. Each class is three hours long. We recommend at least 3-5 hours on the torch before taking Jewelry Series 1. (Try our Introduction to FlameWorking class, first!)
Class dates and times are TBD. Once we have a minimum enrollment of three students, we will contact you to schedule the classes.
Cost: $125 per class or $550 for all 5 classes. 3 student minimum. 10 student maximum.
JEWELRY 1.1 - Pendants - The purpose of this class is to get you comfortable with making the loops. You will learn two different ways of making loops in addition to simple coloring techniques.
JEWELRY 1.2 - Glass Earrings & Studs - The beginning steps in learning to work in pairs. We provide sterling silver posts or hoops. We will finish at least one pair during the class and you will have plenty of parts to create more pairs later.
JEWELRY 1.3 - Hollow Beads - The first class in our Jewelry series to work with tubing. You will learn how to open holes in the tubing where you want them as well as decorate and shape the glass.
JEWELRY 1.4 - Glass Rings - This class will begin by coloring and pulling flat cane. Then you will learn how to shape and size the cane into a finished ring.
JEWELRY 1.5 - Coldworked Ear Tunnels & Plugs - This class introduces the jeweler to cold-working glass. After coloring, shaping, and kilning, we will quick cool the glass, cut and grind the tunnels and plugs, and place them back into the kiln for polishing.
