About the Workshop

Adventure into the world of HOT GLASS! Crate one-off glass beads that are miniature artworks.  Teaching the basics of glass bead making, the tutor will thoroughly explain all aspects of the process, no experience is necessary other than to work with your hands on a small scale.  Participants need good eyesight and the steady use of both hands.  Safety, understanding equipment, glass and mandrel preparation all lead to making your own beads.  As the workshop progresses, more elaborate techniques will be introduced such as shaping beads, using stringers, and decorative techniques, tips, tricks and troubleshooting.  Workshops are structured with a balance between demonstrations and participants practicing techniques.  Upon completion, participants have the knowledge to continue to practise their glass bead-making skills in their own studios.  Due to the nature of this workshop, participants are unable to work unsupervised out of class hours.
