Flamework Glass Workshops
Experience the magic of working with Murano glass and create your personal artisan beads in my studio.
You'll discover a craft that is mindful 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'.
During the workshop you can expect to make a selection of bead styles and will have at least 6 unique handmade beads of your own which will be kiln annealed following the class and then posted to you.
If you are interested in making artisan crafts and jewellery workshops, bead making workshops or glass making workshops are your thing, then you will most definitely love our workshop.
Gift vouchers are available for both full and half day workshops, the perfect gift for anyone creative!
