What You’ll Do

Mesmerizing flames are a common sight inside Jeri Warhaftig’s glass-working studio—as are sparks of creativity. During her 2.5-hour lampworking class, she teaches students to harness both as they melt and shape colorful glass into beads and pendants brimming with their own personal flare.

  • Intro to Glasswork
    Jeri introduces the torch, a few simple tools, and the basic techniques necessary to turn colorful glass into durable beads. Each student will work on his or her own torch.

  • Shape Your Creativity
    After getting the basics down pat, move on to more advanced techniques while creating more elaborate beads and pendants.

  • Take Your Art Home
