In this intermediate to advanced workshop, students will cover basic concepts for designing and creating silly creatures. A step-by-step process for glass beadmaking success will be presented which includes choosing whimsical color combinations which play well together, color masking techniques, fine stringer control, precision with dots, adding minute detail, fixing mistakes, and innovative use of tools to achieve the perfect shape. The demos and instruction are flexible and allow for students to add their own artistic flare to the menagerie of designs. Along the journey, students will create an otter, koala, snail, donkey, hippo, bear, frog, cat, narwhal, bat, and more.
