This class teaches how to construct a “pinchie” style glass pipe. In 4 hours you will learn how to properly make a constriction, size and construct a bowl, form a mouth piece, and construct a more basic graphite poke pinchie. You can also add colored marbles to your pieces. We recommend keeping your pinchie in the kiln overnight to anneal and picking it up the next day. This class comes with all materials including clear & colored glass, safety equipment, use of the studio including tools, use of didymium glasses, all oxygen & fuel gasses, and instructor guidance. When you finish the class you will be presented with a certificate of completion. We feel that you will learn significantly faster with close instructor guidance. Because of that there is a 3 student limit per class.
