Italian Soft Glass Try-iT!
Learn the basics to make beads on the torch

3-hour class
Discover the ease of molding and shaping colorful Italian soft glass when it’s hot! Students will learn to gather molten glass and apply it on a mandrel to make beads on the torch.  We will then explore surface decoration techniques to enhance beads; such as dot stacking and stringer application. Expect to go home with anywhere between 6 and 12 beads depending on your work style.

No experience or supplies necessary. Class cost covers glass and student tool kit rental for the session.

This is a certifying class for Open Studio: Torch use on Free Glass Fridays and more.
