TemperChi Glass Art Studio is currently offering beginning through advanced glass torchworking classes. Sometimes called beadmaking or lampworking, these classes utilize 2-gas torches to sculpt Moretti clear and colored rods (COE 104 "soft" Italian glass) into beads of various sizes and shapes. Tuition ranges from $200-$260 per student per weekend. Two-day (10 hour) workshops are currently held each weekend from 10am to 4pm both Saturday and Sunday in Mountain View, California.

We provide all the tools, equipment and glass necessary; students need only bring work clothes (no polyester), perhaps a lunch (lunch breaks are encouraged, but some students prefer to work right through) and a willingness to learn. These classes are fun and informative. We will show you proper set-up and safety procedures in addition to beginning through advanced techniques of shaping molten glass into works of art, a process which consists of welding and tempering glass using torches and ovens (kilns)
