Beginning Glass Bead Making


Are you fascinated with handmade glass beads? Have you ever wondered just how they are made? This 5-hour workshop will introduce you to the exciting world of Lampworking. Students will use Effetre (soft glass) rods and learn how to make basic beads and designs. You will learn about safety, melting glass, using different tools to shape your beads, and simple techniques to decorate them. At the end of this class, you can expect to have made a handful of beads that you can use to make a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art. A $20 materials fee is due to the instructor at each workshop. This is a 6 hour class which includes a 30 minute lunch break. Pre-registration for this event is required.
