Bead Making Classes
Our upcoming classes:
Michelle Pearson will teach Intro to Glass Bead Making September 10 & 17.
In this introduction to glass bead making you will learn the basics of melting rods of glass into beautiful beads with instructor Michelle Pearson. The class will cover safety and glass basics and give you a chance to learn techniques which you'll be able to build on to create your own bead designs. We'll focus on getting the glass on the mandrel into the form of a round bead in the morning and then begin adding design elements - dots, stringer, twisties & frit in the afternoon. Expect to make 6 - 8 beads in the six hour class, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All tools and materials are provided. Cost is $190. Bring a lunch.
