Next weekend at Sticks & Stones in Mankato I'm teaching a class called Iron-soldered Stone Pendant, which teaches one way to hang a stone without holes and emphasizes how to texture leaded solder, and a basic torch soldering class where we'll be making a simple small-link chain.
The weekend after that, same bat-location, it's a lampworking weekend! I'm ultra excited about that. It's a lampworking refresher in the AM, focusing on making nice shapes, and the many important reasons for learning to layer glass neatly (like even color distribution and pretty hole puckers). In the afternoon we're doing Lampworking III, which will focus on making pendant-sized beads (with the kiln on, waiting for your beads); it will also address silver reactions, using a rake, using murrini, and using bead presses.
