**Flame studio Newbie Nights have been temporarily postponed in response to the current BC Public Health Order restricting group activities. Please check back here for updates. The current order expires on February 5th. Thanks, TCGC**
We've adapted the Newbie Night format slightly, in light of Covid-19, please read on below for all information;
Newbie Night is for members and non-members who want to work in a fun, supervised environment in the hot shop or at the flameworking table. (“Supervised” means we keep you and others near you safe; there’s no teaching.) Also, it’s not just for newbies! Experienced members who want to work in a supportive group environment are welcome.
You must have some flameworking or beadmaking experience. A minimum of 6 hours of TCGC classes and/or private lessons, or equivalent experience elsewhere, is required. Be prepared to explain or demonstrate your experience to the Newbie Night supervisor.
Flameworking & Beadmaking / Tuesdays / 6:30-9:30 pm
The *NEW* Newbie Nights are weekly 3 hour sessions on a Tuesday evening.
We require everyone to pre-book their seat online. This is to ensure we maintain our studio capacity limits and can guarantee a safe and socially distanced working environment. Please refer to our Covid-19 FAQ section for further information.
Four workstations are available each session. One instructor will be on hand for the duration of the session to answer all questions and provide technical guidance and help when needed.
Please do not work under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you appear intoxicated the Newbie Night supervisor will ask you to stop working.
No pipe- or paraphernalia-making.
TCGC provides mandrels, bead release, tools and safety glasses. Glass is also included in the price.
You are welcome to also bring your own glass and tools if you prefer. Here is a list of glass suppliers.
