Visiting  Instructor:  Jennifer Geldard

October 6-7 & 8-9,  2011 at Beads by Design

The Art of Play - Surface Design - Form and Structure


Join Jennifer for a class which covers surface design, form & structure and good old fashioned “play” too!


Starting with the surface techniques- Enamels, shards, metals and creating surface design elements that will produce unlimited possibilities when combined.



Then we’ll move into sculptural and shaping techniques to help you think outside the box.  Whether you are stuck, bored or just need the extra boost, this is for you.


And finally, we will discuss the importance of play and experimentation in your day to day development as a glass artist..and put that into practice in class.


See below for information.





You may mail your completed Registration Form along with a check payable to Southern Flames in the amount of $350.00, to the Southern Flames Treasurer, Camille Simmons, at the address below:


Southern Flames,Inc

c/o Camille Simmons

2154 Briarwillow Drive N.E.,

Atlanta, GA 30345

   Camille’s email address is rcsimmons@mindspring.com


Eight spaces will be available in each class session. 

Once you have been placed in a class, the class fee is non-refundable.  However, if you are ultimately unable to attend the class, you should notify the Treasurer and/or the Event Coordinator, and your space will be offered to those on any waitlist.  You will be refunded your money only if someone takes over and pays for your class space.  The process of filling vacated class spaces must go through the Treasurer/Event Coordinator and the waitlist process. You may not directly sell or give your space to another individual unless all waitlisted persons have declined to take over the space.

At the beginning of the class you will be asked to complete a liability waiver; only those who complete and sign the waiver may attend the class.  You will not be eligible for a refund of the class fee if you refuse to sign the waiver.  In addition, Southern Flames reserves the right to place class photos, which may include pictures of you and/or your class work, on its website.


The Registration Form asks for your name, address, phone number, email address and  preference of class session.  If on the form you state that you can attend either class, you may indicate your first preference and we will attempt to place you in the preferred class.  However, understand that your ability to be flexible in class choice may mean you will be placed in your second choice session in order to accommodate another Southern Flames member with less schedule flexibility.  For instance: You may indicate that you can attend either class session but prefer Saturday/Sunday. If at the time your name is drawn there is space in the Saturday/Sunday class, you will be put into that session per your preference. 


If you have any questions about this class or about the lottery, contact Marcy Lamberson at StudioMarcy@gmail.com or Camille Simmons at rcsimmons@mindspring.com
