Monona Terrace Exhibition Hall - Madison, WI

Hi Lampwork Etc!

I hope it's cool with us posting this, but we wanted to let you know about some events of interest to the flameworking community that is going on at the Glassroots Art Show this year.

Along with the industry tradeshow we run every year, we're trying out something new on the other side of the venue for the first time this year.
From 11 to 3 on October 5th, 6th and 7th, we will be running what we affectionately call "The Education Project".

This is a series of one hour classes given by a variety of well known flameworking teachers (I've included a list below). Total, it's 12 hours of education over three days.

Confirmed Classes/Instructors:
Here's a list of the classes we already have confirmed.

Opal Tech with Big Z
Joints with Karl73
Tune your Herbie with Jason Howard
Fuming with Bob Snodgrass
Tungsten 101 with Firekist
The Female Form with Dina Kalahar
Dichro with Dellene Peralta
Fishing with Matty White
Poppin' Holes with Craig Lewis
GA Talks Color with Thomas Grimmett
Dot Stacking with Tyme
EROSS on the Lathe
Body Parts with Zii
Heat is Everything with Roger Parramore

Steve Sizelove &
Marcel Braun

Tool & Crucible Demos from:
Borro Glass Studio
High Volume Oxygen
Live Free Dezigns
North Jersey Diamond Wheel
Wale Apparatus

Tickets for this event are $100 presale and $125 once the event has started. You can pick up tickets here: (scroll to the bottom of the page)

But wait, there's more!
So, if you're coming for the Education Project, you might as well hang out on the evening of the 5th and 6th from 4 to 9 pm to catch our Live Flameworking Cooperative. This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, and is going to bring together dozens of well known flameworking artists for a bunch of demos and collabs. All items produced at this event will be auctioned off and the all proceeds from sales are donated to the Clean Lakes Alliance, a charity dedicated to cleaning and maintaining the Yahara watershed in Dane County, WI.

And last but not least, on the evening of Oct 6th, from 8 to 11, Hannah Mayorga will be presenting a Mille, Murrine and Marble gallery style exhibit featuring many of todays notable and up and coming mille/marble makers. Tickets are $10 at the door, and free after 9 pm.

We know you all don't allow Facebook posts, so we're making sure all of this info is our website:
And we're also keeping it up to date in the room we've worked with to create on their site:

If you have any questions, please, feel free to PM us or drop us a line at
We hope to see lots of you there!

Also, here's the schedule for the Education Project Classes:

Aaargh. Missed this, and it sounds like a great time! Do you have dates for next time, or a mailing list? I can't find either on the website.
