Loren teaches stamen cane, ball & 3D flowers, creating frit for encasement, forming a complete lampworked flower set-up culminating in a vacuum encased paperweight or marble.


In this second Loren Stump course master and material genius Loren Stump who teaches us the strictly kept secrets associated with what the collectors want! How to make a complete paperweight the RIGHT way.


Paperweight set-up and vacuum encasement:


Session 1 - Start with the end! We immediately hop into making a finished paperweight including vacuum encasement - Why? Because it takes time and practice to become accomplished at this part without any fear. This gives you time to practice so as you will have a decent paperweight by the end of the e_course.

Session 3 - Numerous three dimensional flowers

Session 4 -  Making frit to include on the 'floor' of your paperweight

Session 5 - Assembly set-up
