Glass Lampworking with Sherrie McCabe

 

Beads by Sherrie

 

 

Sherrie graduated from Northern Michigan University with a BS degree in Art Education. Hot glass became her passion about 25 years ago. After two trips to Venice, studying under America’s glass master Loren Stump and retiring from teaching art in the public schools of Michigan, bead making became her focus. She now works in a small home studio overlooking Lake Superior.

Besides the several juried art shows that she exhibits at each year, Sherrie has taught bead making in the public schools, through her home studio and at the Porcupine Mountains Folk School all in Ontonagon, Michigan as well as at the Clearing Folk School in Door County, Wisconsin.

Students will be provided detailed instruction about the tools and methods used to manipulate hot glass in the flame of a torch. Through demonstrations and hands-on practice, each student will use age-old techniques to create wound glass beads with a variety of shapes and patterns.

This is a 12 hour class split between two days. There will be an hour for lunch, so plan on bringing a brown bag lunch as well as something to drink.
