Julie will demonstrate how to make glass beads in the small flame of a torch. You will learn heat control and techniques of different styles, the basics of hot head torch set up and safety. Round beads will be made first. Next, you’ll pull glass stringers from the glass rod to use for decorative details such as dots, scrolls, and swirls on your own beads. Other shapes and techniques using additional glass inclusions and metals will be included as well as making copper head pins for bead assembly. A discussion of common problems associated with bead making will be covered early in the day. Students will make 8-12 beads each. No experience necessary! ***There is a $35 materials fee that is due on day of class (not included in price of class)***
