Mark runs workshops classes and individual lessons in Glass flame-work is his studio at Among the Trees, 27 Sydney st Marrickville in Sydney. He has also taught at a number of venues including 107 Projects in Redfern, Canberra Glassworks and Gordon Studios in Victoria.
Mark 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 and adventurous.
“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 Mark's workshops run for one day, two days or a 2 hour ‘Taster session’ however he has run longer workshops and has regular returning students. Experienced Students can also come to the studio for supervised practice sessions at a discounted rate, between classes. All basic materials are included.
Mark also assists other emerging and established artists with special projects such as incorporating Flame-worked glass elements into a mixed media work.
