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