Pay a drop-in rate of $40 at the door (cash or check), or purchase sessions online in advance at a discounted rate (single session - $30, two sessions - $54, three sessions - $72).

Wild For Animals: Lampworking Fun Animal Beads
GL6203 May 21 & 22 2016 (10am-4:30pm) Saturday/Sunday (Glass Studio)
Rhinos & elephants & bears...oh my! With a few simple tools and a bit of imagination, students will take simple lampwork bead shapes and sculpt them into an assortment of critters and animals.
Heat control, stringer, glass and dot placement will be emphasized.
Lampwork bead presses will also be used to transform basic shapes into fun, wearable wildlife. Basic beadmaking experience required. Ages 16 and over, a materials fee of $30 will be added to the tuition.
Beyond Basic Beadmaking
GL6205 Jun 18 & 19 2016 (10am-4:30pm) Saturday/Sunday (Glass Studio)
Want to take your beginning bead making skills a little farther? This class will take you there...we will explore the
basics a bit deeper, with more precision stringer control, (which includes scroll work and defined lines), hollow beads,
discs and simple cane construction. Heat control and finding that "sweet spot" in the torch will also be covered. Students
will be able to pick up their beads the next day. Ages 16 and over, a materials fee of $40 will be added to the tuition.
