Reducing Intensive

New silver glass intensive curriculum since 2014

Day one of this intensive two-day workshop concentrates on working with a variety of reducing silver glass. Students will explore the many facets of different flame chemistry, along with Hayley's own process, to bring out all the different luster colors, often within one silver glass. Students will also learn how to best capture – and RETAIN – the pearlescent effects under encasement.

Striking Demystified

Day two of this intensive two-day workshop concentrates on learning to work with a variety of striking silver glass, including silver glass that's both reducing and striking, such as Double Helix's Clio and Kalypso. Students will learn how to achieve and recognize the "first strike," thus enabling them to duplicate the striking sequence on their own. Students will learn how to best capture – and RETAIN – the effects under encasement. In addition, students will learn the layering process to get the popular "PINK" iridescent effect.

Students must be at an advanced beginner skill level and comfortable working on a fuel/oxygen mix torch.

Scheherazade

In this one-day workshop, students will learn how to create these mesmerizing Scheherazade beads, Hayley’s popular series, with only dots using silver glass, and gain an understanding of the masking technique and how it affects the positive and negative spaces of the pattern. Hayley will share her unique approach and design theory in achieving her innovative patterns. This class includes a very basic introduction to bringing out the colors and lusters in reducing silver glass. For an in-depth study, students are encouraged to take the Reducing Intensive workshop in conjunction with this one.

Students must be at an advanced beginner skill level and comfortable working on a fuel/oxygen mix torch.

Silver Glass Texture + Murrine

In this one-day workshop, students will learn the tips and techniques behind Hayley's silver glass murrine and create a small murrine pull of their own. Students will then learn Hayley's approach to adding surface texture to silver glass using enamels and other embellishments, and create one of Hayley's Flora series beads. Starting from a base using both striking and reducing silver glass, surface texture and stringer work will then be added. Students will complete the bead by applying the murrine pulled earlier.

Students must be at an intermediate skill level and comfortable working on a fuel/oxygen mix torch.

Dragon Scale Beads

In this one-day workshop, students will learn the techniques behind Hayley's Dragon Scale series beads. Students will practice creating this very challenging bead using different silver glass and silver glass combinations while being mindful of careful heat control in order to retain the iridescent effect. Instruction will be given on how to use an Infinite Rim Marble Mold. (Please note the class does not include capping and coring instructions.)

Design Your Own Ornate Bead

In this one-day workshop, students will learn how to create one of Hayley's Ornate Series beads. Once the practice bead is made, students will take the techniques learned and sketch a bead of their own design. Hayley will help trouble shoot on both the step-by-step process and glass used. Students will then have the tools to create their own unique Ornate beads both in class and at their studio.

Students must be at an advanced skill level and comfortable working on a fuel/oxygen mix torch.
