Want to make your own beads and bead jewelry? Want to learn an ancient glass technique (lampwork)? This is a great class to build your knowledge and confidence at the torch.

In this class you will focus on using Effetre (a traditional Italian soft glass) to create wound beads on a mandrel. You will learn basic shapes and basic design techniques such as: applying dots, pulling stingers, creating and using latticino cane. Over the course of the class you will also learn how to read the heat of the glass. No prior experience necessary.
