November 15, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Hollow Beads – Soft Glass – (Oct 19, 2018)


Instructor Bronwen Heilman
Oct. 19, 2018
Friday 12 noon – 4 pm
PREREQUISITE: Beginning Beads or Instructor Approval

In this class we will begin with the disk bead. Once this style is mastered, the hollow bead is the next step. You will learn how to wrap the glass onto the mandrel so that air is trapped between the discs. Next step is to use a puffy mandrel to blow out your hollow beads. Come prepared to take notes and learn how to control your shapes. There will be lots of hands on practice in this class.
