What you'll do

You will spend up to 3 hours with Tara in her 50s retro trailer that has been converted into a glass studio. She will start by showing you some basics about equipment, safety and how to identify and use your tools. Then she will instruct you in making a bead from start to finish. Narrating step by step. Next you will jump on to the torch to demonstrate your new skills. In hopes of creating your own pendant. Art created in demo is yours to keep!!
