Flameworking Open Torch:

Specifically for the experienced flameworker, our state of the art studios set a high standard for your best experience in making your glass artwork. Wired for sound, well heated, ventilated and lit, you’ll never run out of fuel, and will be continually inspired by the artwork and reference materials surrounding you everywhere you turn in our purpose built brand new building. The only thing you'll need to provide is your own glass, and we've got a huge selection of boro and soft rod available for sale! 

Taking an Arc + Flame Glass Flameworking Night Course will qualify you to rent studio time. Other studio renters will need to be approved to work independently. For more information on rental approval, please contact our Operations Manager at info@rocafc.com or call our front desk at 585-349-7110.

Rochester Arc + Flame Center welcomes you, and invites you to release your inner fire!
