Off-Mandrel Hollow Beads

April 28th - May 19th
Amy Lemaire |

During the course of this workshop, we will explore non-traditional methods for making flame worked glass beads without the use of a mandrel. Beads have a long history within the context of trading and commerce, and these stories can serve as a prompt for our exploration in the studio. Techniques covered include off-mandrel hollow beads and cabochons, incalmo, and working with different types of punties and blowpipes to make beads without using a mandrel. We will utilize COE 104 soda-lime glass. Some previous experience is helpful.
