Event Description

Make Glass Beads:  Introduction to Lampworking:  Making glass beads is great fun and an opportunity to play with fire in a controlled and supportive environment.  This class will teach you the art of lampworking, a technique of using a torch and melting glass rods to create various shapes.  Safety and appropriate equipment handling are emphasized.  Your beads will need to stay in a kiln overnight to be annealed.  No previous experience necessary.

Instructor: Karen Kubby
