Description:

This is a 3 to 4 hour taster session to give you a sample of bead making, ideal if you want to have a go to see if lampworking is for you.

All aspects of bead making for beginners will be covered, tools & equipment, health & safety, types of glass etc followed by demonstration of basic tasks such as pulling stringers and making a basic bead. At the end of the course you will have made several basic beads and have an idea of what you need to start making your own beads. All beads made on the day will be posted to you after they have been annealed in our kiln.

The course can run either morning or afternoon to suit your needs and refreshments will be provided. Weekend dates are available but limited, we will contact you after purchase to book the date.

Ruth and Andy Harrison are full time, self-taught lampwork glass artists based in Burton-On-Trent.

What's included in the price?

All tools and materials are included in the course fee.


Want to review this course?

Andy and Ruth at Kalypso Glassworks were fantastic. It was my first attempt at lampwork. I took the morning class, which started at 10am. Andy went over safety and the basics of lampwork beadmaking. Then Ruth took over to patiently walk me through making a few beads. They were both very friendly, knowledgeable and fun to learn from. It was an immensely enjoyable morning. Two days later my attempts arrived in the post - kiln annealed for strength and just the right size to fit on my charm bead bracelet. A really delightful experience and I would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you (-:
