This 2 hour workshop will teach you the basics about glass bead making using a small torch. You will learn to wind molten glass around steel mandrels to create beautiful beads. After you have taken a beginner bead class you will be able to rent time at the studio to make more beads! Please wear contacts if applicable, tie back long hair, wear non-synthetic clothing and closed toed shoes. *Your beads will be ready for pick up or shipping the day after your class*
Hi! My name is Leah, I'm the owner of Big Eddy Glass Works and I've been making beads since 2002. I am super excited to show you around the shop and teach you how to make your own glass beads.
