    Class in Arkansas with Beau Anderson click here for pictures and web site

    Glass Bead Making Both ancient and modern, the art of making glass beads continues to entrance and fascinate glass workers and other craft artisans. This 5-day class is appropriate for both beginners who have never made a bead, and for more experienced bead makers – as the class will be tailored to individual needs. Some techniques that can be accessed during the class include stringer work, twisted canes, murrini, feathering, and raking, among others. Students can expect to come away from the class with a series of glass beads, whether in a classic bead style, miniature vessel form, or sculptural form including fish, birds or other animals. Finishing work, including grinding, then polishing will also be covered.

    Beau Anderson was introduced to the torch by his mother, Sage, at the young age of seven. Although he has diverse interests, Beau’s focus within glass art has explored beadmaking and its history; as well as integrative multi-media projects. He has demonstrated and instructed the art of glass beadmaking throughout the Americas, both at a grassroots level and at such prestigious institutions as Corning Museum of Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Center and Pilchuck Glass School; as well as internationally in France, Germany, Denmark and Spain. In 2013, Beau (and his mom, Sage) will be teaching ‘The Master’s Class’ at the Bead and Button Show. In addition, he will be a presenter at the International Society of Glass Beadmakers annual “Gathering”. Beau’s work has been published in Ornament magazine; as well as in Beads of Glass, Beading for the Soul and The History of Beads.
