Creativity and the Corsage/Necklace
Corsage Class 1

This class will focus on the creation of a glass corsage and necklace in a two day period.   The first day, will be the lampworking portion, followed by wire working and assemblage the second day.  The students will learn how to create the sculptural shapes.  The students should have had several years of lampworking experience.  No beginners...    Experimentation with color combinations will be encouraged.  The students will be shown how to create glass sculptures using creative methods with the final design in mind.  They will be making glass corsages of their OWN creation, not the exact piece shown.  Each piece they create will be unique to them.

I demonstrate methods to make the necklace, pins and bracelets.  All students learn all techniques   I can bring the wire for the projects at a cost of $4.50 per student.

Corsage Class 2Students should bring........
Personal lampworking tools
Raking tools
Pointed tweezers with no teeth
Writing materials
Sterling or copper jewelry cones and clasp for necklace on second day
Wire working tools – jewelry pliers with no teeth, heavy duty wire cutters (both days) and smaller wire cutters.

9am - 4pm or 10am - 5pm

This one-day class will cover the most cost effective ways to use the highly silvered 104 glasses including decoration. Precision 104 from Northstar, Double Helix and TAG glass as well as parts of the Vetrofond and Moretti palette are selected for most interesting results. Several projects will enhance the students ability to test colors, mix colors and apply those techniques to bead decoration. Each student will take home a handbook filled with test results utilizing stringer techniques. Each student will gain knowledge of how to test colors for maximum results. For beyond beginners.
Stop wasting that expensive glass and learn how to use it effectively!
