Classes Offered

Introduction to Lampwork Beads – Phelan Tolusmidr
This one-hour class is intended to provide the student with the basic tools and skills to safely work with a Hot Head torch and 104 COE glass to make lampwork beads. We will cover terms, materials, safety, and techniques. This class is required for all future bead making classes in this series. Class size: no limit, class duration 1 hour, materials fee $1.

Beginning Lampwork Beads – Phelan Tolusmidr
This course will teach intermediate lampworking techniques to replicate beads from 800 – 1000 AD Scandinavia. Period glass working techniques will be covered for historical background. Students will be taught what sorts of beads were being produced and were otherwise available. This is a hands-on class – the instructor will demonstrate a bead and then students will practice making the same bead. Class size 6 (or up to 12 if students are willing to share torches), class duration 3 hours, materials fee $5.

Fukuro toji 袋とじ Pouch (Book) Binding – HL ‘Izza al-Dimashqiyya
Chinese culture and inventions played a major influence in the countries surrounding it, and Japan was no different. Art, literature, cuisine, and inventions flowed from the mainland to the small island nation, including paper and the developing bookbinding styles. Of all the styles which made their way from the mainland, the one style which was fully embraced by the
Japanese people and which can still be seen today is the Fukuro toji or Pouch binding method. In this method, sheets of paper are printed or written on one side (as the traditional paper only takes ink on one side), and then folded and bound with decorative stitching on the open end, forming pouch-style pages. For this class we will briefly go over the history of this book binding style and make a pouch bound book. Class Size: Unlimited No age limit but younger children will need help from parents for parts of the process (All children under
12 must be accompanied by an adult during the class)
