The bead class

The bead class is going well! I feel like I'm learning a lot, and we're making cool beads. The instructor has some really fantastic samples, and overall, I'm pretty happy about the whole thing. My first beads come out of the kiln tomorrow, and we'll see what they look like then. This weekend we're learning something that looks like the bead in the second row of her website, on the far left.

The frustrating thing about classes is that you want to learn lots of technique, but your first try on a bead doesn't always look quite right. It's always kind of frustrating to have someone ask you what your learnt, and only have a handful of mis-shapen wonkies to look at.

I'll post piccies after I get home tomorrow.
