FRIENDLY FIGURES: Soft Glass Bear Beads

October 5th, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Han Duong |

Learn how to make cute bear beads to enhance your jewelry or make free-standing bear figurines with soft glass! This class will focus on making body parts and adding limbs/details to your figure beads. This class will be excellent to grow existing flameworking skills. Prior glass experience is not necessary but encouraged.  

What to expect: Flameworking with soft glass requires a little practice at heat control with the torch to create successful sculptures. After demonstrations, students will have time on the torch to hone their skills. Read more about how to prepare for class on our Registration Info page. 

Eligibility: No previous experience required. Open to ages 14 and up.

Pick-up: The glass needs to cool down overnight, so the students will have to return to UrbanGlass once notified to pick up their work.

This is an in-person class taking place on-site at UrbanGlass. Health and safety guidelines will be emailed to you upon registration. 

We recommend registering for classes early to reserve your spot! We base materials, and teacher needs off of student enrollment. Early registration not only guarantees your spot in class, but also helps to ensure the class will run. Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled within two weeks of the start date of class. Contact our Registrar of Education, Ari Eshoo, at if you have questions about the class or would like to arrange a payment plan.
