Glass Beadmaking: Swirls & Dots! (artEAST satellite class)

Saturday, 10am - 2pm

April 23rd (2016)

Register through


Workshop takes place at Striking Art Studio LLC


Have fun working with soft glass in a relaxed atmosphere as you are introduced to the beginning techniques of glass beadmaking on a bench mounted torch. After covering the basics of torch and studio safety we will melt colorful glass rods to create simple bead shapes (round, swirl, tab, etc). You will also learn to use specialty smashers and marvers to create intriguing surface textures, as well as use stringer to create whimsical dot and swirl patterns.. Beads will be kiln annealed and ready for pickup the following week at the art center.

Create an exquisite fine silver link bracelet featuring a bead dangle and a custom clasp. Session starts with torch and studio safety and covers all the tips and techniques needed to fuse fine silver wire. Students will finish their bracelets with a hammered technique that catches the light beautifully. Your jewelry will be tumbled and ready to take home at the end of the class. Beginning and continuing students are welcome to take this workshop as many times as they like to continue practicing their fusing skills. No prerequisites.
