Flame Effects for the Artist-February 11th and 12th. North Shore, Oahu Hawaii

Hawaii is ablaze.

The Flame Effects for Artist class will be coming to the island of Oahu, Hawaii with a great workshop for those who wish to incorporate fire aspects into their art!

Ka Pilina Interactive Arts Society will present this great 2-day workshop in flame effects with the artist in mind.
The workshop will be for those from the mainland to come to and enjoy the islands as well as for those who are already working and based in the Pacific Rim area.

In this workshop we will be teaching basic practices and principles for incorporating fuel based flame effects into your artistic projects and artwork. 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.

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 including the ever-popular clear propane tank.

After the first days class the great folks from the Ka Pilina Interactive Arts Society will host us for a great beachside BB-Q, moonlight fire and meet and greet.

Wow that sounds awesome!

The second day will be a shop day where we will put what we have learned into action and create a one of a kind flame effect from the materials on hand. The best part of the class is the assembly of the effect so please let us know if you have materials or elements you may like to see incorporated. This class will be fun for the artist who is thinking of incorporating a small flame element into their work, as well as the more experienced fire artist wanting to take their work to the next level.

Leading this weekend will be Dave X, Fire Safety Manager for Burning Man for more than 10 years, and Eric Smith, Chief Inspector for the State of Nevada Board for the Regulation of LP Gas. We will also have displays of fire art from several local fire artists!
