Prerequisite: NONE
Students 16 years and up may register for this class.

IMPORTANT: Students taking glass courses must wear natural fiber clothing (i.e., cotton shirt and denim jeans), closed toe shoes and hair tied back and out of the way. Loose clothing that will be in the way of the torch is strongly discouraged.

Impress your friends and family by making your very own first glass beads from molten glass! We will discuss important studio safety issues followed by time at a surface mix torch creating glass beads using soda-lime glass rods. You will make basic torus (doughnut) and cylinder shape beads and explore the properties of glass including making frit to decorate your beads. Three color qualities of soft glass rods will be explored: stiff, medium and soft. All materials included.
