Lucie Kovarova-Weir: INT Workshop - Murrini Demystified
From Saturday, 22 January 2011 -  12:00am
To Sunday, 23 January 2011 - 11:59pm

This workshop with Lucie Kovarova-Weir is geared for the Intermediate beadmaker.

Muririni Demystified:
Signature and Flower
for intermediate level students

Students will learn simple and fast murine techniques.  Building a "dough-like" mass of glass and than pulling it into a bar to be cut into segments that than can be applied to a bead or pendant.

Day one:
We will analyze and plan the design: breaking the desired idea into its smallest possible components, planning step by step.  Students will learn molten glass application and specific use of heat.  The actual construction of the small component will follow; two letters, flower stamen and petals will be completed and annealed over night.
Day two:
Following the plan and design construction the final complex cane will be assembled, using components made previous day. The whole glass mass will be heated and pulled into a bar of desired diameter size.  Students will learn the advantage of using boro-silicate punties and hotplate to pre heat components. Segment of a final cane will be cut into chips and application and use of such chip explained.

Two letter Signature cane and flower will be completed
