Build on your previously developed glass torch skills by extending your time at a surface mix torch, creating glass beads using soda-lime glass rods. You will make several new bead shapes and continue to explore the properties of glass, including making your own stringers and using dots and lines. This class is intended to expand your repertory of techniques in glass bead-making. If you are interested in exploring a technique, please inform the instructor. All materials included.

IMPORTANT: Students taking glass torch classes must wear natural fiber clothing (i.e., cotton shirt and denim jeans), closed-toe shoes, and hair tied back and out of the way. Loose clothing in the way of the torch is strongly discouraged. Please wear clothing you consider less than essential to your wardrobe. MASKS ARE REQUIRED.
