Learn how to encase your beads to give them depth and more of a 3D look, how to create stripes from a dot by using glass displacement, and how to make forced bubble decoration in your beads. All glass materials, gas, kiln firing and and safety gear is included. As your beads need to be processed in a kiln afterwards, they can not be taken home on the day. The cost of *posting your beads is also included in the fee.
