Flowers Under Glass
The main focus of this 3 day workshop is making your own custom flower murrini. Students will learn to make 3 dimensional flower
murrini using two different techniques; building a flower in layers of color in one session at the torch and to make separate
components individually, then assembled over a few days.
Techniques will include how to make all the components for each floral murrini cane; including different types stamen cane,
petals, color layering tips and techniques. Student will learn to assemble the final canes. Learn to heat the bundle, use heat
control and pull the cane to the desired thickness without distortion.
On day 3 students will use the murrini made in class to create simple and multi layered beads. Learning how to apply and encase
them in their beads using several different techniques. We will also use copper mesh, dichroic glass, stringer and more to add
depth interest to our garden.
Each student will leave the class with a minimum of 2 floral canes and the knowledge to make many more. Several beads will be
created will be made the 3rd day.
This class will be taught in Bullseye COE 90 but you can request *COE 104 as long as we keep each students glass separate. If
your choose 104 you may have to bring some glass if I do not have the colors you want. Also COE 104 clear is pretty dirty so you
will want to have some super clear or Double Helix clear this costs more than the BE clear. Please make arrangements with me
when you sign up if you will be working in COE104.
Level: intermediate/advanced flameworking
Class Cost $550.00
The creation of micro mosaics dates back to the early 1600s in Italy,
becoming popular with tourists who collected them as mementos of
their travels through Italy in the 1800s. These tiny works of art remain
an intriguing and beautiful form of glass art today. Micro mosaics are
created by slicing up tiny pieces of glass cane, called tesserae, and
laying them into a matrix of paste to hold them in place. Micro mosaics
have been used largely in the creation of highly detailed imagery in
jewelry, and in this class that will be our focus.
All Guest instructor classes include basic
materials for class. Some classes require a kit
fee that is not included.
Lunch is provided each class day.
$425.00 plus tax on materials
Micro Mosaic Jewelry with Flameworked Glass Components
In this class you’ll learn the ancient technique of creating micro mosaics using small
glass components called tesserae. You’ll learn how to flamework a variety of shapes
in glass, which become tiny imagery of flowers and leaves. After creating the glass
pieces you’ll cut and assemble them in premade bezel jewelry findings using a
traditional Italian technique. In this two day class you’ll make three to five pieces of
jewelry and have many tesserae to take home for future projects.
