What is the Hot Craft Area?
The Hot Craft Studio is a fully functional studio for lampworking (also called torchworking or hot glass working) and jewelry/metalsmithing. There are tools and equipment specific for each discipline allowing members to work independently from others using the area. Weekly classes, weekend workshops and private instruction are available.
The term "Lampworking" is a type of glasswork where a torch (historically, a lamp) is primarily used to melt the glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements.
The term “metalsmithing” refers to fabricating small metal objects using jewelry fabrication skills and tools and is combined with the term "jewelry" in these pages.
As with all our shops, treat tools and equipment carefully and put them back, clean, where you found them so they will be there next time!
For more information about the specific tools available in the Hot Craft Studio, please see the relevant discipline link below.
