You will learn the basic techniques such as how to wind glass onto a stainless steel “mandrel.” How to apply dots, pull stringers, create simple latticino cane, and various other decorations. You will learn how to “read the heat” as well as how to move the glass in order to have good non-pointy holes to your beads. No prior experience necessary.
