So Cal Flame Surfers is a regional chapter of ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers). Our members come from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Diego Counties. We are passionate about flameworking in both soft and borosilicate glass. We are also longtime supporters of Beads of Courage and our chapter donates over 1,000 courage beads every year. Please help us increase our support of Beads of Courage by making a donation on this page.
Come by and meet us during our Open Studio Event on Saturday, September 9, from 10 am to 4 pm. The event will be at GooseFire Glass Center, 15151 Goldenwest Cir, Westminster, CA
Please join our chapter if you love working in glass or would love to learn what it is all about: www.socalflamesurfers.org
