I will demonstrate how to apply watercolor style designs to the surface of your beads. The technique teaches how to 'paint' with molten glass, mix the colors on the surface of the bead, 'draw' with stringers and apply enamels. The final effect is a loose, painterly style. Through demonstrations, instruction and plenty of hands-on-work, students will have the opportunity to master this technique and hopefully develop it further to reflect their own style. We will also cover the 8 steps for creating a successful composition, including color theory and layout. It will be a friendly relaxed environment where I hope we will all have fun on our journey together!

Learn how to create a self hanging cabochon out of copper and glass in the flame. Through demonstration and lots of hands on experience, Julie will show you how to form copper wire into decorative shapes, which will then be applied to the glass in the flame. The copper wire provides surface decoration and also a means to hang your glass cabochon. Once the glass has been annealed and the copper cleaned, you are ready to go! Fantastic Christmas gifts for friends and family.
