If you’re fascinated by baubles, bangles, and beads, this is the class for you. You will make many glass beads as you learn the basic skills of heating Moretti (soft) glass, applying it to a mandrel, and shaping it with tools. You will learn to make round beads and alter the shape and add decorative color with techniques like encasing, dots, frits and trails.
Class tuition includes 2 hours of open studio time per student to be used during the same class session. This will help students become familiar with the studio and learn the simple process of studio rental outside of class hours.
