About Jennie by Jennie
One of the reasons glass is my medium of choice is its ability to allow a depth of design which is not achievable in most other arts. It is this that keeps me fascinated and absorbed with melting glass. I had my first class in 2009 and have not looked back since and I now work with glass full time. I live on the coast in North Devon, UK on a tidal river estuary and close to the sea and, like a lot of artists, my work is heavily influenced by the ever changing landscapes and tides, the colours and foliage that the seasons bring. It is the three dimensional quality of glass that really fascinates me. My Beads are award winning, one of a kind pieces. Each one is made with love and most are influenced by the coastal area I live and walk in.
Over the two day workshop we will be learning how to create a crisp swirl design within your beads. How to manipulate the glass to create beautiful oceanic designs. We will be looking at how to create a more 3d effect to your beads and some useful tips on encasing and using clear glass to magnify your design. You will be working with Goldstone, Double Helix Glass and your very own signature murrini to make your very own Ocean Bead. Once we have learnt these techniques we will make a beautiful mini paperweight with an Ocean inspired theme.
