February 10 & 11, 2018
Saturday & Sunday 10AM-4PM
Recommended: prior soft glass bead making experience.
This class gives you the basic skills to make Italian – Venetian style mouth blown beads with a small blow pipe using soft glass.
For those who have before made beads on a mandrel can find a new dimension to their work. For those who have tried this before, you can learn my tips and tricks to make this work for you.
Tools needed in addition to your regular flame working tools are:
-small hollow blow pipe
-small diamond shears
-small hot fingers
The instructor will have these tools to use in class if you do not have your own.
