Posted in Uncategorized at 2:00 pm by kim

BEAD MAKING COURSES AND TUITION – YANDINA FLAMEWORKING STUDIO NOW OPEN!

Studio

Kimmyg is proud to announce that a new, dedicated flameworking studio has been opened at Yandina on the Sunshine Coast. The studio is purpose built, air-conditioned and is the perfect venue for you to learn the ancient technique of lampworking. Currently tuition is by arrangement and can be tailored to your needs. Whether you are a complete novice or wishing to extend your skills, the team at Yandina are ready to accommodate you! The new studio is situated in Pioneer Road, near the popular Ginger Factory and runs alongside the hot glass studio where internationally recognised and admired artists Stanislav Melis, Tina Cooper, Lucas Salton, Noel Hart, Jonathon Westacott and Greg Royer also work.

Kimmyg will be teaching glass beadmaking, lampworking (or flameworking, as it is otherwise known) classes by arrangement. For further details of all classes go to ‘Teaching’. Classes can be booked to suit your personal timetable and skill level.

In addition to basic courses at beginner, next step and intermediate levels, Kimmyg is offering short courses to extend your skills in Murrini making, Twisties Stringer and Complex Canes, and Using Presses. Maximum class size will be eight and classes are held at the Sunshine Coast Hot Glass Studio in Yandina, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. Class fees include use of all equipment and glass.

Susan’s world has always included art and creativity. As a home schooling Mum, with a menagerie of animals in her care, it is a wonder she has time for anything, but her passion for flameworking, first ignited in 2006, now represents an important part of her life.

Susan’s connection with ‘the goddess’, that which is a sacred part of a woman’s psyche, is evident in her work and provides her with much needed and well deserved ‘me’ time!!

hollow beads……Rifie’s characters continue to delight me every time I see her new submissions. Whether they are individual sculptural beads to incorporate into your own designs, or whether they are earrings with a cute, tiny, detailed bear at the end of the drop, they are sure to elicit comment. How could one fail to be charmed?
