BOC night! (Chicagoland) June 16, 2017
Friday evening June 16, at Fine Line in St Charles IL.

I love the BOC program, and at our last faculty meeting I asked if we could dedicate a session (or more) to specifically make BOC beads for donation. This will be our first one.

We have 12 torches, good ventilation, glass donated by Ed Hoys (about 5 pounds), eye wear, mandrels, bead release and basic tools. (graphite, tweezers etc...) I'll also likely bring a bunch of bead rollers.

I'll open the doors at 5, and close them at 9. Can't get there until 7? not a problem! I'm just opening the doors at 5 kind of like an open house.

We're scheduled to be an official host studio for BOC in September, so maybe you can join us then.

Our "trial run" went well. We only had 7 people, but managed to make 66 beads. (I'll post pictures once they're cleaned)

Even though I was a last minute addition, glad I made it! It was a lot of fun to meet everyone and happy to support a good cause when I can. The studio was awesome too. Looking forward to the pic of everybody's work!
