In this intermediate class, Carolyn will begin with more simple flower structures and progress to more complex forms. She will show us some of her innovative ways to attach metal to molten glass, blow hollows for pendants, flower parts, and perfume bottles. She will show us how to blow hollow beads into optic molds. We will then learn to construct larger pieces using wire and waxed linen to make finished flower assemblages.

Carolyn's BeadCamp last year was such a successs the we persuaded her to teach again this year. This Fall she will include a demonstration on how to use one of the glass flowers and turn it into a nightlight. With simple metalworking tools and a small piece of galvanized steel or copper your glass flower will light up your home forever.
