Glass beads are a fun and colourful way to explore the world of glass! In this 6-week class you will melt rods of soft glass in a small torch to make a gorgeous assortment of beads. Starting with the basic bead shape, you will learn decorative techniques such as frit, dots and stringer and experiment with different shapes including simple sculptural forms. In addition we will cover technical aspects of glass and safety. No experience necessary. All materials are included.
