Jeri Warhaftig
"Beadmakers - KICK IT UP A NOTCH!"
June 4 - 5 (2-day workshop)


This class is open to all levels of beadmaking students interested in working in "soft" glass. Newbies will begin their love affair with glass in the flame and more advanced students will have a chance to explore a variety of glass working techniques, tools and materials. Students will learn the fundamentals of symmetrical shapes and clean encasing. Other topics include copper inclusions, dichroic glass and unique mashers, presses and shapers. Bring your curiosity and your questions and at the end of this class we will all be tired and overjoyed with our intensive exposure to the art of glass beadmaking. 

This class meets from 9am to 5pm each day, Saturday and Sunday, with additional studio time Saturday, from 5pm to 9pm. Materials for participating in the course are included. If you have specific colors you are interested in working with please bring them with you.  



Jeri Warhaftig is a NJ glass artist who has been working with glass at the flame and in the kiln for almost 25 years. She is the author of Glass Bead Workshop and Glass Beadmaking, published by Lark. She is also the past president of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers. Jeri's body of work centers around the coldworking and alteration of finished glass. This can be seen in her intricately sandblasted designs on both cast glass pieces and beads. She is adept at the use of a vitrigraph kiln and most recently has become known for delicate yet durable borosilicate glass chain. Jeri's greatest pleasure is to work with other beadmakers in the exploration of exciting and innovative designs and the search for each artist's own creative voice.
