Workshops Glass.

Occasionally Studio Jackaroo (located at Beugen NL) opens its doors to enthusiastic people who have already become acquainted with the flamework technique. A workshop day will involve working at the torch while Jacky Geurts takes you into her world to share her knowledge with you. For example, think of (for the bead makers among us) “a fiery adventure with lady’s torso” In which, as the title implies, you will see the glass female torso emerge from the flame. But also for example “Flowers from a bubble”, Fantasy flowers blown out of tube glass. this workshop is still in development. There are, of course, many more topics that can be addressed.The studio accommodates 3 students, and has 3 different oxygen burners.
