Mark runs workshops classes and individual lessons in Glass flame-work at a
number of venues including Canberra Glassworks, Gordon Studios and in his
studio at Among the Trees Marrickville.
He has developed an approach to teaching borosilicate Flame-work which
combines improvisation with planning and structure. His aim is to make the first
encounter with this new medium informative yet playful.
“To blow a glass bubble or sculpt a blob of molten glass in the flame is like
working with toffee or liquid gemstone: it’s mesmerising”
Usually marks workshops run for one day, two days or a half day however some
run for a full week and he also provides 2 hour ‘Taster sessions’ Students can
also come to the studio for supervised practice sessions at a discounted rate,
Mark also assists other emerging and established artists with special projects
such as incorporating Flame-worked glass elements into a mixed media work.
