Students in this class will briefly learn about the equipment and safety precautions necessary to safely work soft glass into unique beads. Understanding how glass reacts when heated, learn to shape the glass and the student will walk away with a glass beads ready to be used in their next jewelry project or gifted to a friend! It will also get you hooked on hot glass, and you’ll be looking for more intense workshops on soft and borosilicate glass at The Jax in the future!
