Introduction to Flameworking Glass
Fri 26 May- 10:00 am - 4:30 pm£160.00
Discover the art of flameworking glass and create your own beautiful beads using a wide selection of colours and processes. You will learn the fundamentals of flameworking, also known as lampworking, with demonstrations and plenty of practice time, working from your own torch.
Our experienced tutor will guide you through the technique; introduce you to flameworking tools and equipment, the types and properties of glass, styles of flameworking and how to keep it safe. You will have lots of opportunity to express your creativity with the colour and design of your beads. You will work from your own torch to design and make ten or more beads over the day. Your beads will need to cool overnight in a kiln and can either be collected at a later time or posted on to you.
Flameworking glass is both an accessible and addictive technique ideally suited to beginners with an interest in creating with glass.
All materials, tools and equipment are provided.
The day is split into two sessions by a break for lunch.
