April and May classes are on the schedule.  Choose "spring" ornaments or Intro to Glass Beadmaking. Includes a bird demo in each class too!  

"Spring" Ornament Classes - April 15

Michelle will teach the holiday ornament classes in spring colors.  We'll try elongated shapes to look like eggs or outside decoration with stringer for those who've taken the class before.

Intro to glass beads May 13 - Register Here

This is an introductory glass bead making class.  It includes general safety, glass properties, equipment and tool orientation.  Then we sit down & make beads!  I start with black and white rods to make basic round beads with good puckers, then build on that with twisties and basic stringer (thin rods) decorations including dots & stripes.  Bring a lunch - we'll take a break around noon to refuel.  Beads anneal in the kiln overnight and you can pick them up the next day.  Includes 2 free hours of torch time the next day so you can try your hand again while it's still fresh!

And just for a little extra fun - Michelle will demo a blown bird in each of the classes.  Photos below are my first flock from a class at Glass Craft Expo/ International Society of Glass Beadmakers conference in March. And guess what!  They are made from pulled points - just like the ornaments!
