Lampwork beads for beginners

£120 Make an enquiry

This course is designed for complete beginners who would like to the art of lampworked beads.

I teach the health and safety of working with hot glass and the associated equipment, we then move on to the science of the glass, and I explain the different equipment we use.

You will be shown how to wrap a basic bead and how to shape it with only gravity, once you are comfortable with this we move on to different shapes and different decoration techniques. I teach you how to pull stringers and how to use them as a tool or a way to decorate your beads, I also teach more advanced stringer techniques for adding more patterns and colour.

This course covers a broad spectrum of techniques and skills used for bead making.

All tools and materials are supplied everything you make is yours to keep and will be annealed in the kiln over night, which will be available for you to collect once cooled, or they can be posted for a small charge.

The course runs from 10am until 4pm, with a short lunch. Drinks are provided through out the day.
