Glass beadmaking is your chance to work with hot glass on a small scale. Learn to melt rods of glass in a propane-oxygen flame, wrap the molten glass onto a mandrel, and then use heat and gravity to shape a round bead. You will pull stringers (thin strings of glass) and use them to decorate your beads with dots, lines and simple flowers. We'll also cover basic torch safety, glass terminology, annealing, and bead cleaning. Prerequisite: None
