This 4-week class is for students who want to learn the basics of beadmaking and working hot glass in a torch. Students will learn to safely operate equipment and tools, manipulate molten glass into multiple shapes and refine their skills by exploring decorative techniques such as dots, stripes and twisties. The instructor will be there to assist with design techniques, offer suggestions and assist students in completing their design ideas. Basic wire working will also be taught so you can make earrings, pendants, keychains and more.
Class price includes safety glasses, various colors of Moretti glass for use during class, mandrels, kiln time and all the tools needed.
A glass kit with additional colors and mandrels is available for purchase for $40.00.
Everyone welcome; no prerequisites! After the second class you may come in and rent studio time. This class is a prerequisite for future flameworking classes.
