Make colorful beaded necklaces or stunning drop earrings using components you’ve designed and created yourself! Many beads will be created over the course of 8 weeks as you learn the basic skills of heating Moretti (soft) glass, applying it to a mandrel, then using gravity and tools to shape it. First, learn to make round beads and alter their shape. Then, learn to add decorative color with techniques like encasing, dots, frits, trails, and more.
Class tuition includes 2 hours of open-studio time to be used during the 8-week course period. This will help you become familiar with the studio itself and learn the process of studio rental beyond class hours.
