Encased Bead and Wiggley Wire Workshop
Wednesday, 31 August 2011, 6:00pm - 9:00pm

NEW Workshop at the Glass Shoppe Studio

I am collaborating with Louise Darbyshire on this very intriguing 2 part workshop – kind of a ‘make & take’.  First you’ll need to make 17 beads, and then you’ll learn to wire them into a Wiggly Chain Necklace and Earrings.

Part A – Instructor Grace Edwards: Wednesday August 31st 6pm-9pm, Part B Instructor Louise Darbyshire – Monday September 12th 6pm-9pm

Part A – this is my part:  on Wednesday evening August 31st from 6-9, I’ll show you 4-5 different encased designs that are a part of the necklace and earing set on display at the Glass Shoppe right now.  Emphasis will be:

-          creating 12-14mm encased beads with surface decoration

-          techniques will include encasing and surface design

-          the surface designs I’ll demo and instruct will be:  simple flower, stringer wrap, multi dot bead, 3 layer melted dot design and large twisted dots

You’ll then have 2 weeks to finish making all the beads you’ll need for the project.  For the second part of the workshop:

Part B – Louise will teach: wrapped loops, wiggley links, ear wire, clasp, cluster drop and headpins.  All you need to know to put together the necklace and earrings in the pictures below.

-          There will be 3 different kits available to buy and use for the wiring: Copper – 10 dollars, Brass – 15 dollars and Sterling for 40 dollars.

The cost for the Workshop is 125.00 plus the kit fee of your choice.  Includes all glass, tools and supplies needed to make the beads AS WELL AS two additional  hours of torch time (Oxy Con) to complete your lampwork beads.   

Come in, call or email to reserve your spot.
