Introduction to Glass Bead Making (1 day) Saturday 22 November: Session 1, 10-12pm. Session 2, 12:30-2:30pm. Session 3, 2:30-4:30pm, £40 per session
Hosted by Maggie Napier, flamework glass artist and jewellery maker, owner of Glass-i Studio.
In this two hour individually tailored workshop you will have one-to-one tuition and learn the basics of working with Murano glass rods in a specialist flamework torch to produce unique glass beads.
Simple glass shaping and decorating techniques, such as marvering, gravity shaping, stringer and frit decoration, will be demonstrated for you to try and by the end of the session you will have a range of your own glass beads to use in jewellery making.
All beads produced in the session will be kiln annealed for durability, cleaned and posted to you for your own use, or if you wish I can make up a necklace or earrings for you, using your beads for a thoughtful Christmas gift!
