Flamework Glass Workshops

Experience the magic of working with Murano glass and create your own original artisan beads in my studio. 

Perfect for an interactive and creative day out with friends or family, this class will let you get creative and learn the techniques of creating beautiful glass beads by melting and shaping glass. Not only will you learn a fun and useful skill, but you’ll also have a great time.

You'll discover a craft that is mindful, challenging and engaging whilst creating something unique you'll enjoy wearing for years to come. 

I've welcomed and worked with both professional makers and absolute beginners sharing our passion and curiosity for 'glassbeadmaking'

In this workshop, you'll learn the essential principles of glass beadmaking in a flamework torch, a craft that has been practiced for centuries. I'll guide you through the process of creating your own unique beads, teaching you the fundamentals of color and pattern selection, bead design, and the proper use of tools and supplies.
