My 3 hour lampwork taster course is very popular. We will be working in a fully equipped studio, with all of the necessary safety equipment. All materials will be supplied for you to make a good handful of unique glass beads.
We cover many topics, including health and safety, bead making techniques, such as various decorating methods, annealing and cold-working.
You will get to keep all of the beads you make, plus the beads I make to demonstrate after they have been fully annealed and cleaned.
One to one tuition is available but I have two dual fuel state of the art torches, so can accommodate two students at a time.
You will be provided with safety glasses and aprons for your session, but it's best to wear old clothing, closed in shoes and make sure your hair is tied back if long.
We always have a lot of fun during our sessions, with the focus on enjoying playing with glass!
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
All materials are included with use of my equipment and protective clothing.
I provide refreshments but if you have special requirements, please bring it along.

I had a great time on this course learning about the basics of lamp work. Jo is a friendly instructor, with good depth of knowledge about her art. After a short safety talk and demonstration I was put straight into making beads. I also got to have a go at spotting and stringer techniques. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in glass art.
