Glass Bead Making Workshop

In this two-day workshop, students will be shown how to use our flameworking torches to shape beads, add color and adorn their creations with simple design elements. The first portion of the class includes important safety information, so students must arrive on time. Wear cotton clothes and close-toed shoes. Most supplies are included in the class price, and additional glass rods are available for purchase at the Craft Center.
