Description
This class will cover the various ways of making what's known as a twisty, how to apply them to a bead and what not to do. Beginners are welcome but some previous lamp work experience is helpful. The class will be interactive where the exchange of ideas and tips will be encouraged. If there is time we will move on to stringers and millefiori. Everyone will have the opportunity to make and experiment with twisties. Students are cautioned to wear "camp" garb with short or tight sleeves. Eye protection will be available but you are encouraged to bring your own. Donations to cover glass and gas will be accepted but aren't required. Class limited to 10 but observers welcome.
