Glass Flameworking: Beads (Soft Glass)Using a table-top torch, glass rods are melted to a molten state, then shaped with tools and hand movements. There are two main types of flameworking glass, borosilicate (or boro) and soft. Each type of glass - boro and soft - is suited to making different types of projects based on its COE (coefficient of expansion). 

Soft Glass is ideal for projects involving bead making and surface decoration. Glass Flameworking Bead classes at Arc + Flame are available as 3-Hour Samplers, 8-Hour Workshops, Multi-Session Night Courses and Specialty Courses.
