Product Description

Beads for adornment have been made from a host of materials for millennia. Learn to make lightweight hollow low-fire ceramic beads in this fun and exciting mini class with a friendly group. Techniques for making, decorating, glazing, and firing will be explored, as well as some basic stringing and knotting techniques. Materials will be provided, including clay, casting slip, nichrome wire for firing, glazes, underglazes, stains, etc. (there may be other material costs, depending on individual student choices)   Each class session will end with a group loading of a small kiln.
