Arc + Flame is still not cleared to run any classes for the general public, including open torch flameworking. As a result, we have postponed all classes through Sept. 30th, 2020. This is based entirely on New York State’s mandates pertaining to COVID. Our center is open for retail and walk-in customers from 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Our Fall 2020 Welding & Fabrication Industry Certificate Program through Monroe Community College is currently able to run because of direct partnership with higher education. The same goes for our collegiate welding classes for engineering students through Rochester Institute of Technology and machining and HVAC students through Monroe Community College. Please read our re-open plan for more details. We appreciate your understanding.

Glass Flameworking: Sculpture (Boro 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). 

Boro glass is ideal for creating sculptures and hollow forms. Glass Flameworking Sculpture classes at Arc + Flame are available as 3-Hour Samplers, 8-Hour Workshops, Multi-Session Night Courses, Date Nights and Specialty Courses.
