Description
This class will be an introduction to the art of lampwork or glass bead production. It will cover safety, tools, and basic skills necessary for making glass beads. And because I am teaching, a little history of the craft will also be thrown in while working at the torch! Students will learn the basic techniques for making beads and will make some beads themselves. Class size is limited to 10 unless the student brings their own hot head torch. Students should dress in natural fibers without flowing sleeves. Class cost $10 to support cost of materials. Some basic glass making kits may be available for sale after the end of the day.
