You can be a Beads of Courage: SUPERSTAR! Have a little (or a lot!) of beadmaking experience and want to get involved in the Beads of Courage program? Join our skills workshops to improve your sculptural beadmaking chops and help create beads for children at CCHMC in the BOC program.
This month, we are focusing on Stringer Control! Students will learn how to best control thin glass stringer to create designs on their beads. Stringer control requires a balance of heat and patience! Join us to learn all the tricks.
Some beadmaking experience required. Students who have taken "Introduction to Glass Beadmaking Part 1 or 2", or who can illustrate their beadmaking proficiency, are eligible. Bring 3-5 bead samples with you if you are unsure of your eligibility. If you are just a beginner- don't worry! Join us for a few SUPERSTAR workshops until you are ready!
30 minutes of instruction/demo will be given at 3:30pm. Students may stay after and volunteer their time to create beads for BOC as late as 5pm.
Beads of Courage: SUPER-STAR WORKSHOPS are free demonstrations designed to build flameworking skills for students with the purpose of growing our community of flameworkers who can participate in the Beads of Courage program. Want to make beads for Beads of Courage (BOC)? Join us for these workshops to learn more about the "Dos" and "Don'ts" of flameworking for Children's Hospital, and most importantly - to join our community of flameworkers who love to GIVE BACK.
ALL GLASS IS DONATED! You donate your time, and we will provide the glass.
