Talking Wesley Fleming - Soft Glass Sculpture, Sharon NH

Have you been wanting to learn how to sculpt soft glass, to maintain better heat control of your glass, to make delicately intricate forms, and make fun and quick animal sculptures?

I'm teaching at Sharon Arts Center in New Hampshire next month and the workshop is a STEAL! Two days for $240 - where else can you take a two-day workshop for that price?!?

Wesley Fleming - "Off-Mandrel" Soft Glass Sculpture

Sharon Arts Center in Sharon, New Hampshire

Saturday and Sunday, September 22 and 23, 10am-4pm.
Tuition: $240, Member Rate: $200.

How much experience do we need? I am very interested, but a little afraid.

Cherri - If you can recommend a good teaching venue in Florida, I'd be happy to contact them to see if they're interested in hosting me for a workshop!

Pam - It looks like you've been here on LE for over a year, so can I assume that's how long you've been flameworking? If so, that should be fine. You mainly need to be comfortable melting soft glass (Effetre/Moretti is what I teach with) and have a general understanding of flameworking.

I've taught a number of people who have had not much more than 24 hours' time on the torch and they picked things up pretty well. This class will help you become more confident the glass

Please let me know if you have any more questions!

Cynthia, I bet you'd make some crazy-looking, bug-eyed bugs

California is on my list of places to teach someday soon. Haven't lined anything up yet, but I'm open to it!

I want...I want...I want ! Now look what ya made me do...I'm channeling Bill Murray's character in What About Bob

If ever you make it to the Eugene Glass School I'll be first on the list ! I might even drive down to California (hate the traffic down there) for such an opportunity.

Wesley, my husband and I were in Northampton MA strolling through the various art galleries - I was so delighted to see some of your work in one of them!

Donna - I'm glad you got to enjoy my work at Don Muller Gallery

Ginger - October! I'm teaching at Dream Fire Glass in San Antonio, Texas on October 27-28. However, I think the class has been wait-listed for a while! That said, I'm doing a demonstration on that Friday evening the 26th, for the local bead group - maybe if you're really nice to them, they'll let you in?

California peeps - Mention me to your local teaching studio That really helps to get classes lined up! It sounds like there are at least a few of you that would be definites and studios like to know that they'll fill a class...

North Carolina! PLEASE! We have beaches, we have mountains, and we have lots of glassy folks. But if you make it to FL -- maybe Roccio's? -- it would certainly be worth the drive.

Shelley, you aren't kidding! I think the price is too low, but that's how they structure their prices, so no arguing.

Francesca, I'd love to teach somewhere further south(east.) Nothing is in the pipeline yet, though. I will be teaching in Texas this October, but that's certainly not southeast

Alrighty folks, registration ends soon on this ridiculously good deal of a class! Get while the gettin' is good, as nobody else charges this insanely low amount of money for a class - even other non-profits.

Hi Cathy - yes, there are still openings. The class is definitely on, too. It'd be nice to have you

As for teaching in Florida, I am open to that possibility. I'm working on scheduling for next year right now, in fact.

Cathy, I'm glad you're excited!!! I look forward to meeting you.

Please let me know if you have any more questions - I'm happy to answer them!

Here are the lists of tools and glass recommended for the class. Regarding the glass, basically just colors to work with for sculpting - transparents are usually a little stiffer and easier to learn off-mandrel with, if you're not used to it. But opaques are obviously nice for decoration.

TOOLS:
- eye protection (didymium or equivalent)
- shears for cutting glass
- non-serrated tweezers
- shaping tool, like cheese knife or Stump-shaper
- graphite pad or paddle
- tungsten pick

optional tools:
- serrated tweezers
- bbq mashers
- clothespin (wooden with spring)
- rod rest for hot glass rods
- can for water, to put scrap glass in
- clean towel or rag, for cleaning glass rods


GLASS:
- assortment of 104 coe glass, including:
- black, 1/4 pound
- white, 1/4 pound
- clear, 1/4 pound
- range of opaques and transparents to experiment with (dark cobalt, green, and amber all make good colors for learning to sculpt with, as they are stiffer in the heat.)
- if you'd like to try experimenting with extra features, feel free to bring dichroic, goldstone, Double Helix glass, etc.

This class was amazing and very quaint. I still cant believe what Wesley can do with glass, the creepy legs of his insects are extremely detailed... Thank you again for such a great time. I'll make you proud by practicing.....

Wow! If I had only known! I'm so lucky to be close. I'll have to be on the lookout for your classes next year! Not sure when signups start for Snow Farm 2013, but that's a great place to take a class.
