2-hour BEAD Making Experience (Call to make an appointment)


Instructor Nan Charif or Bronwen Heilman
Call 520-884-7814 to make an appointment

This 2-hour flame shop experience (or taster) class introduces you to melting soft glass with a torch to make beads.

You will begin by winding molten glass onto steel mandrels.  There are several ways to decorate the glass beads.  Some of which are using frit (crushed colored glass), stringers (pulled small for dots and lines) and rods (thicker glass).

You will be learning how to control the heat and how to use gravity (one of my favorite tools) along with using graphite tools.

Upon completion of this lamp working taster session,  you will have the opportunity to sign up for the next available full 9 hour class at 10% off.

No prior experience necessary.
