Experience the magic of creating beautiful borosilicate beads with award-winning (and Guild favorite) lampwork artist Doug Remschneider. In this 2-day class, he will share his expertise in borosilicate beadmaking and off-mandrel projects. In the 2 days you will learn how to create beads that are drenched in colors by layering and color-mixing, flamestriking for exact color control, special annealing cycles for achieving pinks and purples and manipulating the glass to create exciting designs. Doug will also cover the chemical properties of borosilicate color which helps explain how this glass reacts to heat. With the perfect balance of instructor demonstrations and hands-on torch time this is a class not to be missed. Torch Experience needed. Glass provided. Please bring your own tools when possible.
