Mikelson’s Festival of Arts

Mikelson’s Festival of Arts is a summer event that features local artisans.   This year was the 40th anniversary  and to mark that achievement, the Pacific Pyros Glass bead makers decided to do demonstrations of our craft.  Members participated in doing live lampworking demonstrations , much to the delight of the public.  Many were amazed by the skill involved in making a glass bead.  We were blessed with fantastic weather and beautiful surroundings.  All that, and melting glass too!  Couldn’t get much better!

 

Beer & Beadz – June 2013

June 22, 2013, Leslie Fords studio, Squamish, BC

Once again, Leslie was an excellent host.   The munchies were great and her glass stash is unbelieveable!

Only a couple of us made it out this time unfortunately but we still had a great time!  We started off watching a DVD on silver fuming, very interesting.  A couple of us sat down to the torch and made a few beads but only 1 made it to the kiln.

… until next time!
