Whistler Molten Experience
What a great event!! this year the featured headliner was Heather Trimlett and Beth Williams. Heather demonstrated oodles of useful techniques such as laying down a perfect footprint of glass, making twisties, hollow beads and her famous disk bead. Beth demonstrated how to make beautiful, sparkly dichroic stringers.
Alexx came in from Thailand again this year and once again dazzled us with his not so standard bead making techniques. You should have seen Heather’s face when Alexx pulled out a spritzer bottle and started spraying his hot bead with water.
Melanie Rowe demo’d mold making using Mold Mix 6, the mold making product she uses for making her beautiful faces. Deb Tarry demonstrated how to use various molds with boro.
The weather was absolutely awesome! no rain and lots of sun. The temperature was upwards of 17C during the height of the day but dropping to zero at night. Some attendees rented canoes and went paddling on the lake while others took long walks and hikes. Some of us stopped in at the Spa Scandinav for a bit of relaxation therapy before getting to this WME event.
The schedule was jam packed with flamework demos, mold making demos, wire wrapping lessons, fusing lessons and an open forum on pricing your work.
Everything went very smoothly. The food was great, the wine was plentiful, the rooms were comfy. We’re all looking forward to another year of Whistler Molten Experience.
