Lampwork Beadmaking Half day Taster Class



This is a 3 to 4 hour taster course to give you a sample of bead making, ideal if you are unsure if lampwork 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 a basic bead 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. Ruth and Andy Harrison are full time, self-taught lampwork glass artists with over 15 years of experience based in Burton-On-Trent. We discovered lampworking almost by accident and it was a hobby for a little while before quickly becoming a full time job, and obsession.
