22nd International Flameworking Conference in US

From 15-17 March 2024 Salem Community College in the US will host the 22nd International Flameworking Conference (IFC).

This three-day event promotes excellence in flameworking through artist demonstrations and scholarly presentations. The weekend attracts glass artists and enthusiasts from around the US and the world.

In 2024, the conference will continue its core mission of education, the promotion of the techniques and its practitioners.

Featured artist this year is Mathieu Grodet, who is joined by eight demonstrating flameworking practitioners who will show off their skills over the weekend. They are Shayla Windstar Behrman, Ivan Bestari Minar Pradipta, Lilla Tabasso, Paul Stankard, Rocko Belloso, Joy Munshower, Kyle Meyer and Elliott Todd.

The weekend includes a film screening, presentations, demonstrations, exhibits, and seller displays.

On the Friday evening, curator, speaker and advocate for artists, Susie Silbert will present the keynote address, followed by a screening of filmmaker Dan Collins’ latest documentary, entitled ‘Paul Stankard: Flower & Flame’. NB Paul is one of the contributors to the upcoming May 2024 edition of the Contemporary Glass Society’s (CGS) Glass Network print magazine, which is sent to all members of CGS.
