Age and Disability
Flameworking is relatively accessible form of hot glass work and as such is available to a wider range of people than traditional glassblowing. It is still however somewhat demanding both physically and mentally. We ask that anyone with any disabilities or health conditions to please notify us before scheduling a class. We will do everything in our power to include anyone who can safely participate, but we reserve the right to make that judgment all the way up to and through the end of the class. Anybody who cant participate for health reasons will be fully refunded.
Our minimum age for participation is 14, though we ask that anyone under the age of 18 have a parent or legal guardian fill out and sign their release form.
Preparing for your flameworking class
At Fiamma Glass we provide all the necessary tools, equipment, and supplies for your flameworking class, but we recommend a couple of things...
-wear comfortable clothing made of natural materials. Try to avoid wearing anything too loose or dangling
-wear as little jewelry as possible
-if you need eye correction, contacts are preferable or if not possible smaller/lighter glasses tend to be better than large ones as you will have to wear our special glasses over them.
-Closed toed shoes are recommended
-bottled water/snacks. There are many restaurants within walking distance, but for those who want to bring their own we have a microwave and a refrigerator.
-PLEASE COME A FEW MINUTES EARLY!! our classes begin with very important safety information. If you cant make it to the beginning of the class you may be unable to participate and may have to reschedule so please let us know as soon as possible. Otherwise we ask that you try and arrive 10 minutes in advance so that we can get to the fun stuff as fast as possible!
