Level: All Levels
This intensive one week beginner’s level workshop introduces the art and science of glass beadmaking. Using a bead maker’s torch and rods of Italian glass, students will learn basic bead shapes, decorating techniques, use of hand tools, glass theory and safety. More advanced techniques will be explored as interest and skill level allows. Students will go home with many, many glass beads they have made. This class is suitable for both bright shiny newbies and my repeat offenders. Materials Fee includes all use of tools and materials. Please wear closed toed shoes and cotton clothing. A half hour lunch break will take place each day.
