Materials used may include gold, silver, copper, dichroic glass, Herkimer diamond, volcanic pebbles, and a wide spectrum of colored glass. Demonstrations and topics discussed will be guided by questions asked.   Lots of hands torch work  on under the guidance of a master glass artist.    Miles also teaches at Corning Museum of Glass.
