The Deal

  • $29 for a bead-making class ($60 value)

Each class lasts an hour and a half, during which time students learn to make one to three beads under the careful supervision of a trained lampworker. Choose from the following days and times: Tuesday–Saturday at 1 p.m., Thursday at 7 p.m., or Saturday at 3 p.m. All classes are limited to two students, except for the 7 p.m. Thursday class, which has up to four students.

The Glass Shoppe Studio

Inside the Glass Shoppe's 10-torch teaching studio, students learn the ancient art of beadmaking, also called lampwork. Four-week intro to beadmaking classes demonstrate how each color inside a bead comes from a different rod of glass, which is shaped and manipulated in its molten form to create a finished piece. Participants make beads one at a time before taking them to the kiln then cleaning and stringing them. Open-studio time gives students the space and tools necessary to bring the plans brewing in their imaginations to fruition. For those who prefer to complete their art at home, the studio also sells glassmaking supplies and completed glass pieces.
