In this five day workshop, we will focus on stringer control and shaping of glass beads on a mandrel. Then we will move on to adding surface patina by the application of metals to the glass in the form of powder, leaf and silver glass.
In addition, there will be the introduction of design methods and principles, sources of inspiration and their applications for beads. We will explore the use of color, shape, texture, pattern and theme in our work. All of this is focused on ways to achieve our own personal style of bead making.
Class will include a discussion about and demonstration of design methods and principles, as well as Cooper's sources of inspiration, and unique modular approach of creating geometric, floral and animal forms on beads.
