Lampwork glass taster session

Beads similar to those that can be made during a taster session.

About the Course

In our one hour taster session we will cover the essential health and safety aspects of lampworking and the equipment we will be using, to ensure that we are safe during the session. Then we will move on to the most exciting part of the course, making the beads.

I will demonstrate making glass stringers and twisties which we will use later in the session to decorate beads. Then I will show you how we make round beads and decorate them. You will then make and decorate your own beads.

Depending on how quickly we progress you may make between 2/5 beads. These will be kiln annealed overnight together with the beads that I make during the session. Once annealed they will be cleaned and posted to you.

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 glass, tools and safety equipment are included in the price together with any beads I make during the session.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits are also included.
