Map & Directions
Making glass beads is great fun and an opportunity to do something outside of your normal routine. You’ll have an unusual response to give when friends ask you what is new in your life. This class will increase your hand-eye coordination and allow you to make beads that can be used in jewelry making.
This class will teach you the art of lampworking, a technique of using a torch and melting glass rods to create various shapes. Safety and appropriate equipment handling are emphasized. Your beads will need to stay in a kiln overnight to be annealed. No previous experience necessary. Instructor: Karen Kubby NOTE: Participants must be at least 15 years old.
Registration is through Kirkwood Community College. Register at:
www.kirkwood.edu and go to Continuing Education and then search for Beadology Iowa under the instructor search. On site registrations will be taken if registration through Kirkwood meets minimum requirements of four participants.
