Glass Summer Session 2
June 5–June 17
Blown Glass Beads: Skills and 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, which will help you become independent and skilled in blowing beads and composing balanced and wearable objects. All levels. Flameworking studio.
