Join us for a fun introduction to “Journey Beads“! This 2-hour class is designed to give you a hands-on way to support the program while enjoying a fun night in our studio. You’ll learn to melt colorful rods of glass to a mandrel over a torch, as our experienced artists lead you through the process of creating some of the basic beads used in the program. Please note: this class does not automatically qualify you as an official Journey Beads volunteer bead-maker, but can be used as the first step on that path. For those that wish to continue on and become official Journey Beads volunteer bead makers, this class makes you eligible for our 2-day Official Journey Beads Training Course.
Open to all ages and skill levels, no previous glass art experience necessary.
Students must be 11 years or older. Students under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
All tools, materials, and finished project included with ticket price.
Projects created in our studios will be ready for pickup 5-7 days after completion.
Classes may be cancelled due to low enrollment. See our full Cancellation Policy HERE.
The safety and comfort of our staff, students, and customers is our top priority. Masks are recommended in the studios, but not required.
If you are feeling unwell, please reschedule your class or visit for a time when you are feeling better. At this time, we are applying more liberal rescheduling terms for all classes, events, and activities to provide students greater flexibility in making decisions that are best for them, without incurring financial penalties. Glass Art Kalamazoo will continue to observe social distancing and clean frequently to help keep everyone safe.
