Join us for an exclusive, Road Scholar-only week of creativity at Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program in Williamsburg, Mass.! Combine the best of two worlds — glass beads and jewelry — in a workshop that welcomes all levels of creative ability. During the first two days of classes, learn how to create unique beads by flame-working soft glass. Then, in the next days, learn how to use hand tools, wire, sheet metal and findings to incorporate your beads into finished pieces of jewelry. Discover how to design your own earrings, necklaces, bracelets and more. We’ll cap off the week with a student art show and wine-and-cheese reception!
