Hot Shop Rebuild

We have exciting news! As you may know, we are upgrading our Hot Shop Studio and equipment at the very beginning of 2020. 

This exciting rebuild will give us more capabilities in our Hot Shop and better clarity of glass. 

This is a significant construction project for us, lasting almost 3 weeks, but do not fret! The gallery and the Flamework Studio will still be open. The Hot Shop will be taped off to the public for safety. Classes in the Hot Shop will be available after January 18, 2020. Flamework classes will not be interrupted. 

Running for at 2100 degrees for a solid 18 months, this will be the first time we've completely cooled down our furnace since starting it up in our Canal Park Location. The process is simple, yet requires patience. It could take up to 5 days for our crucible (pot of melted glass inside of the furnace) to completely cool. It will take another 5 days to reheat the glass to a proper workable temperature. 

What changes will this bring?

  • Better clarity of glass
  • More temperature control 
  • New set up to allow up to three students to participate in our Hot Shop classes
  • Pricing structure change 

 

Our new pricing structure goes live after Dec 31, but book your classes today and pay the 2019 prices! (Schedule only available through May 2020.)
