In May I attended Whistler Molten Experience, a bead retreat that included demos and classes. It was held at Edgewater Lodge on beautiful Green Lake.
The featured headliner was Heather Trimlett. Heather demonstrated many useful techniques such as laying down a perfect footprint of glass, making twisties, and her famous disk bead.
Beth Williams demoed using dichroic glass.
Melanie Rowe and Deb Tarry demoed using molds.
Alexx Cheng demoed his beadmaking techniques and also talked about his business in Thailand that makes the lampwork beads for Pandora.
There were classes in wire wrapping and glass fusing given by Henry and others. This is my fusing class project ready to be fused.
The Whistler Molten Experience was a lot of fun. I met many nice people and the demos were informative and interesting. I only wished for more torches there to practice on, but I did get some time in. Yes. I will go again some day.
