"Flame-Worked Glass Beads"
May 6, 2018

Whether a beginner or an advanced glass bead artist, this class is for you. Step by step, Julie will demonstrate how to make glass beads in the small flame of a torch. You will learn heat control and techniques of different styles, the basics of hot head torch set up and safety. Round beads will be made first, then you’ll pull glass stringers from glass rod to use for decorations and details, making dots, scrolls, and swirls on your own beads. Other shapes and techniques using additional glass inclusions and metals will be included as well as making copper head pins for bead assembly. A discussion of common problems associated with bead making will be covered early in the day.
