Intro to Glass Beadmaking Class @ NOCGI

Hey ya'll - It's a bit late to be posting but it's only 3 hours and lots of fun. Haven't you always wanted to play with fire?

Intro to Glass Beadmaking Class @ NOCGI
This three hour workshop will cover using a torch to make both fun and functional items out of Moretti/Effetre glass rods. Some techniques that will be covered are forming a molten “gather” of glass, making a basic bead on a mandrel, pulling and decorating with stringers and making dots. If time permits, DebiDeaux will demonstrate how to make the student’s choice of one of her complex specialty beads. This workshop will help the student decide if the world of Flameworking is for them and will give a taste of what to expect by taking the next step to more advanced classes.

Cost: $180
