1-Day Workshop

Sunday, October 8 | 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Learn how to make those wonderful glass beads you see everywhere! In this workshop students will be taught to make a variety of glass beads in your choice of colors and styles. Using torches, participants will shape soft glass into beads and decorate them with dots, raking, feathering, wrapped spirals and using luster powders and enamels. No previous flameworking experience is required! Discover Series workshops are meant to give participants an opportunity to explore their creativity and to try out a new skill before committing to a longer class. Ages 15 and up welcome.

She has exhibited at the NYC Park Avenue Armory shows and was published in La Vie Claire Magazine, Spring, 2005.
