Intro to Bullseye in Fresh Shapes & Colours 10th/11th
Learn about the Bullseye glass colour palette and fall in love with the character of the glass. Stephanie has used Bullseye glass for fifteen of her twenty years of beadmaking, and will help you learn the new palette quickly, by explaining simple identifiers and leading students through hands-on observations. A kit of Stephanie’s favourite colours and her “cheat sheet” will make it the ultimate crash course, so you can get started quickly, making beautiful, vibrant beads.
On the first day, we’ll make a variety of small beads and a button or two, to learn about the unique stiffness sculptural characteristics and the vivid colours. On the second day, we’ll make some large sculptural beads and cover building beads on the mandrel, decorating and encasing.
Pendants and Buttons in Bullseye Glass 13th/14th
We’ll abandon our mandrels and learn to work on the end of a glass rod and a stainless steel punty, making several shapes of pendants and buttons – hearts, pods, starfish, flowers and more. We’ll decorate them with stripes, dots, zig-zags and lacey edges. The stiffer, Bullseye glass allows for endless sculptural possibilities and much easier formation of bails, loops and button shanks. Stephanie will give clear strategies for controlling the heat and building better beads.
Each student will be provided with a selection pack of Bullseye colour especially selected by Stephanie, you will work with this glass in class and have it to take away when you go home.
This will be an additional cost of approximately £35.00
Spiny Knotted Bracelet Friday 12th half day (optional)
Stephanie will teach her signature Spiny Knotted Bracelet technique on Friday afternoon! Assemble a funky bracelet, combining your favourite colours and motifs. After learning the basic knots and methods, there is no pattern to follow. The materials and simplicity of the design provide an opportunity for self-expression and everyone in the class creates their own unique bracelet.
Students can choose a kit ($65) of beads and fibres in their own colour palette and add in any of their own lampwork beads and buttons (including the ones you might make in the intro class on Wednesday). Students will complete the bracelet in class!
Please bring a packed lunch for first day will be provided on second day tea, coffee, cakes, biscuits and jelly babies on tap
