LIVE In-Person Murrini & Bead Making Classes with CCGlassArt! :-D

Handmade glass murrini beads by CCGlassArt

Christina Catherine of CCGlassArt will be at Graceful Customs in Gilroy, CA to teach a 2 day lampworking glass art class on July 23 and 24, 2016.

Christina has been making lampwork glass beads since 2008 and discovered her “passion” was making murrini.  She has 2 tutorials “Making Beautiful Murrini” and “Making Beautiful Encased Murrini Beads” and has had her tutorials  featured in e-magazines, Soda Lime Times, and ISGB.

Description of classes…

Day 1:
Making ocean-theme murrini, latticino, and other embeds for encasing
– complex concentric circle murrini
– watercolor murrini
– shell murrini
– encased stringers
– black coral strands
– seaweed latticino
Learn multiple techniques on Day 1 while making all the sea-themed elements that will go into the bead design we will construct and encase on day 2.

Day 2:
Putting it all together: Designing and assembling the pattern, applying all the elements, and successfully encasing multi-murrini beads
– learn my reliable, step-by-step method of placing murrini, and other embeds, that creates a color coordinated, harmonious, and visually full design every time
– finish the bead with encasing techniques that suspends the design while maintaining a dimensional look
Day 2 is all about mapping out the bead design, building and properly placing all the elements in the bead then encasing the murrini beneath a layer of clear glass while maintaining the dimensional look of all the embeds.
