This workshop introduces people to working with hot glass on a small scale. The basics of bead making, including the use of tools, safety and bench set-up are covered. Participants will make a dozen or more beads, by developing the various skills of manipulating glass, making stringers, basic bead shapes, marvering, dot application, annealing, bead cleaning and more. No prior experience is needed.
These workshops are held in a large, bright and airy (but warm) working studio. The workshops are limited to a maximum of six people to give you individual attention. All kiln-forming classes are taught using Bullseye glass - the première fusing glass. All tools and materials (and where relevant, the kiln firings) are provided in the workshop fees.
