Program Info
BEGINNER
Is your teen looking for something fun and different to do after school? How about learning a cool new skill? During this hands-on 4-week beginner workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of glass beadmaking
using a a gas oxygen-fueled torch and glass rods. Each student will make between 8-10 beads each day. On the last day, they will learn how to turn their beads into finished jewelry and will leave with a suncatcher and a pendant, bracelet and/or ring and keychain. No experience is necessary and all materials are provided. Open to students ages 11 and older.
*Please note - this is a BEGINNER workshop; geared for students with little to no experience with glass
beadmaking. For students who have already taken our introductory workshops, we offer an advanced afterschool workshop on Wednesdays.

INTERMEDIATE
In this 4-week intermediate workshop, students will build on the skills they learned in our Flameworking I classes.Students will take their glass beadmaking to the next level, with techniques such as advanced encasing, complex and twisted stringer work, as well as detailed stringer control for intricate dot work, masking and layering. Students will also learn to incorporate raw metals and silver glass charts to add depth and dimension to their beads.
PLEASE NOTE - This is an intermediate workshop, for students who are comfortable and competed on the torch. For students who have never taken a glass beadmaking class (or who prefer a refresher) we offer a beginner workshop on Tuesdays.

FEBRUARY/ APRIL BREAK PROGRAMS
JEWELRY/METAL DESIGN-KIDS CAMP-No school? No problem! Have your child trade that iPad or video game for a weeklong journey into art!

Participants will also learn the basics of jewelry design using glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals. There will be a new project each day- from jewelry, photo frames and suncatchers to mobiles, keychains and mosaic lanterns. A nut-free snack and drink will be provided
TEEN FLAMEWORKING/GLASS BEADMAKING CAMP- Is your teen looking for something unique and different to do over February break? How about sending them
to the “hottest” camp around? During this exciting hands-on camp, students will learn the fundamentals of
flameworking, or glass beadmaking, using a gas and oxygen-fueled torch and soft glass. Students will be introduced to the use of heat, gravity and tools to shape molten glass, with a focus on heat control, surface decoration and finishing beads. Each student will make between 8-10 beads each day. On the last day, students will learn how to turn their beads into finished jewelry and will leave with several pendants,
bracelets, keychains and more. A nut-free snack and drink will be provided.
