Bottles to Beads

Kenya Chester

One person's junk is another person's treasure! In this 2-day workshop, we will learn the recycling properties of everyday glassware and how to transform it in the flame shop into something new. Students will experiment with melting and pulling glass cane, while also learning the basics of flameworking glass beads. We will not only cover how to select the right type of glass to use, but where to find it, and how to up-cycle it into your own jewelry!

This class is being offered as part of our 40 for 40 series, a celebration of the 40th anniversary of UrbanGlass.
