The main focus of this 2 day workshop will be exploring the coveted, elusive and often unpredictable Double Helix Glassworks palette.
We will work our way through the line-up of reduction colours that Double Helix has to offer, learning the ins and outs of each. We will be learning to coax a rainbow of colours out of this magical glass! Metallic lustre effects in golds, silvers and more will be achieved.
We will explore recipes to successfully combine Double Helix with Effetre & CIM glass to get the most out of our material. Combining these glasses greatly opens the ranges of colour possibilities as well as reduce material costs.
We will also be simultaneously working on our dot placement, precision, heat control & consistency. We will be playing with variety of bead sizes and shapes on multiple sized mandrels.
This fun class will leave students feeling excited about the endless possibilities that silver-glass has to offer and ready to make every bead shine!!!
