In this 2 day workshop you will learn basic practices and principles for incorporating fuel based flame effects into your work. This class is great for the beginning fire artist and always has something new for the “expert”. Each one of these classes has drawn participants who have had all levels of experience. This has made for some great questions and projects that have been both fun and challenging. The first day will consist of a classroom session where we will discuss subjects including: NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) guidelines including NFPA 54 and 58 the LP gas codes. NFPA 160 Flame Effects Before a Live Audience and other codes. These particular codes are US based, local fire artists will be on hand to discuss applicable local codes and permit procedures. We will also examine the physical properties of LP gasses and get some hands on time with fittings and parts. Of course, we closely examine the wonders of LP gas with the amazing clear propane cylinder. We will then finish off by taking a look at some typical designs for Flame Effects including accumulators, free burning effects, fuel mortars, pilot lights, hot surface igniters and much more. We will have plenty of demonstrations and hands on materials. **Class is limited to 45 participants.** Cost for the two day workshop is $250 AU. We are pleased to be able to offer a second round of scholarships for $100 off the cost of the course paid for by the Melbourne Decompression team from the 2014 event! These scholarships will be open to residents of Melbourne and regional Victoria who want to build art and are willing to showcase what they make at SEED and the next Melbourne Decomp.
