Glass bead making lessons with bead artist & instructor Tim James: A 6-hour Course

Be in control of your bead making process! The foundation on which your bead style is created is as important, if not more so, than the actual visual design itself. An off-balance infrastructure will force your design to shift to one side, effectively altering your intended design. This course will demonstrate how the proper use of gravity, coupled with spot-specific heating techniques, allows you to to naturally center and balance beads each and every time.
Bi-cones, tubular, round, hollow-core; No matter the shape, this process will help you create, and recreate, the bead you intend to make, and to do so consistently.
Frustrated by off-center squished beads? A nicely centered and balanced bead is also the key to balanced Flattened beads. As most of us know from experience, squishing an off-balance bead exaggerates just how off-center it is, and can ruin what is otherwise a usable bead. This process gives you the ability to stay on center each and every time.
