Beginners Lampworking Tuition at my studio in Bristol's city centre!
I have been making glassware for 15 years and teaching adult classes for 5 years. Glass is an amazing material to work with and completely unique.
Learn how to create glass beads in an in-depth one to one teaching environment.

You will learn the skills necessary for:
-Working the glass hot in the flame
-Creating glass beads
-Surface decoration

What's included in the price?

All glass and tools are included in the class, and you get to keep the beads created.

The beads need to cool down overnight, so you can either collect at a later date or postage can be arranged at a small extra cost.

Want to review this course?

I surprised my girlfriend with a birthday present of a trip to Bristol and a glass-bead making course with Cat, which was a fantastic experience I would definitely recommend to others! Right from the moment I contacted Cat asking about the content of the beginners course, how suitable it would be for us, which dates she was available etc. she was so friendly and accommodating, even allowing us to shift the dates back due to unforeseen circumstances. We were treated to a brilliant 6 hours of bead making, starting with familiarisation with the glass rods, the torch and other basic techniques and before lunch we had even made our own beads. Cat is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced but also very patient and made it a thoroughly enjoyable day for both of us! The beads look amazing but the experience itself surpassed all expectations. Thanks Cat!


Very good course - I learnt a lot from cat and came away with skills such as making my own twisties, large hole beads etc
