Bead Making: Mastering Sculptural Detail

April 12th - May 3rd
Roxann Slate |

This workshop is for anyone new to flameworking or those looking to refine their skills. Students will learn how to melt colorful rods of glass and form unique beads. The workshop will begin with basic round forms and dot layering; then move onto more complex shapes and patterns required to make various animals, skulls and robots.  Students will be encouraged to do thoughtful looking and thinking to practice the skills required to engineer their own patterns and shapes. The aim is to make ambitious beads that are both visually interesting and well crafted.  Students will learn the full skill set required to come back to the studio and work independently.
