Instructor: Patricia Larsen-Goodin
This class will expand your thinking about working off-mandrel to make drops, dangles and charms. Using a variety of fun colors we will explore hand and mold shaping.
Working off-mandrel on wire will be the focus of the class. We will make shanks using copper and stainless steel wire. We will use the duckbill mandrel and push molds to create hand- and mold-shaped pieces.
This class is for anyone with a basic foundation in beadmaking, such as our one-day beadmaking course.
About the Instructor
Patricia is a glass bead and jewelry artist based in Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. She took her first lampworking workshop at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, Washington in the early ‘90s. She found her passion that weekend and has been pursuing it ever since. She is primarily self-taught but in recent years has taken an occasional class. Her artistic voice is constantly in motion and she finds inspiration in moments of solitude. She is heavily influenced by shape and the intersection of arcs and lines both in the topical application of design and in the intersection of beads in jewelry design. Patricia's Etsy shop.
Patricia has a Bachelor of LIberal Arts from the Evergreen State University in Olympia, Washington. She is a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers.
