Bead Making Quick and Easy

Saturday, October 11 and 25th:  10:00 AM- 4:00 PM

We’ve added a new class to our line-up.  Our Quick and Easy Bead making class instructed by Suzanne Comella. Suzanne has been making glass beads for over ten years and has taught classes here at the studio over the last year.  She has been out of commission this past summer due to a hand injury, but is back in the game after several weeks of physical therapy.  We are delighted to have her back on the team.  Suzanne is also available during the week to teach classes so if there are students interested in a Thursday morning class please contact the studio and we’ll work out some sessions.  We will be limiting class size to four students so contact the studio today if you are interested in taking this class. cropped-photo-1.jpg

Two Sesssions: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM with half hour break for lunch.  Cost: $150.00, includes the book “The Complete Book of Glass Bead Making” (Retail value: $19.95) the use of studio torch, tools and some supplies.  Students will need to purchase glass rods and provide two canisters of MAP/Propane fuel for each class session.

Come and explore the world of glass bead-making and see why this art form can be so addictive. From the time you learn to light the torch and melt the glass, you will be guided through a variety of techniques including how to create particular bead shapes such as round or donut shapes, cylinders and bicones. You will learn to decorate your beads using pulled stringers and twisties (handmade by you of course), dots and even learn how to make your very own glass frit. We’ll also try our hand at encasing and making a simple 2-3 layer murrini. This beginner class will be jammed with loads of demos and lots of fun!
