    If you have previous beadmaking experience, treat yourself to something new - learn to make holiday-themed glass beads, ornaments, and decorations. We'll use both soft and borosilicate glass to create solid and blown pieces. Your designs are sure to become the family favorites on the tree and the most popular gifts under it! For advanced-beginning to intermediate students; no absolute beginners, please. Students should have some glass beadmaking experience - preferably recent.
