Shauna Mitru teaches the following lampwork bead making classes at the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre in Regina.  Call (306) 777-7521 to register.
 
 
Level One:
Learn all the fundamentals of making glass beads and studio safety while using a torch.  We will teach the basics of how to manipulate the glass in the flame and shape it into beads using gravity.  Create simple surface designs by applying dots, stripes and by using other fundamental techniques such as raking, poking and twisting to make unique glass beads.
 
Level Two:
Building on the basics learned in Level One, refine your skills with more in-depth instruction on decorating techniques, using surface tension and heat control.  Learn how to make hollow beads and clear-case your designs to add more depth to your beads.  Prerequisite: Level One or equivalent experience.
 
Project Class:
This is an excellent class for students who have taken a class and would like extra torch time to practice and fine tune their designs.  With the instructor in attendance for guidance, you will be able to work on your special beads and assemble your creations into jewelry.
 
Enhancing Your Style:
The focus of this class will be on learning through experimentation.   Learn how to achieve a variety of effects using fine silver, copper leaf and with complex twisted canes.  Prerequisite: Level one or equivalent experience.
