Blown Glass Beads: Skills & Shapes

This workshop will focus on blown glass beads. Working with soft glass, we’ll create wearable glass bead compositions that are voluminous yet light. We’ll start by making round beads, then use heat, gravity, and rotation to make different shapes. We’ll cover surface decoration and stringing beads to make jewelry. This dynamic and practical workshop will include group demonstrations and one-on-one instruction with the goal of giving you the information you need to be independent and skilled in blowing beads and composing balanced and wearable objects. All levels. Code 02GB
