Are you fascinated with handmade glass beads? Have you ever
wondered just how they are made? This 5-hour Workshop will

will use Effetre (soft glass) rods and learn how to make basic
beads and designs. You will learn about safety, melting
glass, using different tools to shape your beads, and simple
techniques to decorate them. A t the end of this class, you can
expect to have made a handful of beads that you can use to
make a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art. A $20 materials
fee is due to the instructor at each workshop. This class will
include a 30 minute lunch break.
