Glass


A community of enthusiastic artists and students call the Glass Studio at Brookfield Craft Center home. Lampwork, fused and stained glass classes are generally held as short Sampler Workshops or weekend workshops. Classes range from introductory to master-level, along with Lampwork Open Studio programs for independent practice. Lampwork beads are made using our 7 Minor torches fueled by oxy/propane and an annealing kiln. Small and large fused glass pieces are fired and slumped in “bathtub” and tabletop kilns.
