Masterclass to Master Glass - Intermediate/Advanced Glass Beadmaking
Class Fees - $525.00  (no materials or kit fees)
$100.00 non-refundable deposit is required at sign-up
Description from Corinas Web Page
You think that title sounds arrogant? Ha, me too! I still love the title, because it rhymes, and those of you who know me, know that I am anything but arrogant about my work.... So, let's live with it for a while, until someone sends me a nasty email about it and makes me feel 2 inches tall...
What does this class teach?
Pretty much all of the things in "Passing The Flame", and a bunch of  new stuff as well: how to make a round bead in no time, dot-application and designing with
dots, dot-manipulation like poking, twisting, silver-lined dots. And then of course (the one thing that most students want to learn from me): stringer control. We will make a variety of twisties and striped cane, encased goldstone stringer, use of dichroic - and then we'll encase, of course. The type of beads we'll work on as the "graduation" pieces depend on the desire of the students, we either make florals, or tidepool/fossil beads, or something else altogether.
The main goal of this class is to gain maximum control over glass - so that it will do what you want it to do. Accordingly, I do NOT teach any type of organic bead, or the use of silvered glass etc.
Who should take this class?
Anybody who is interested in "classic beadmaking techniques" (as described above), versus "tricks" or "effects". Beginners are welcome (as long as they
know how to turn a torch on without singing their eyebrows), but be aware that I do NOT spend any time on safety issues, eye protection or ventilation. I expect
students to already know about this. Would intermediate to advanced beadmakers benefit from this class? Absolutely! I had many advanced students in my classes
who told me: "I wish I had known that a long time ago..."
