Introduction to Glass Beadmaking
[aka Beadmaking Introduction workshop] This is an introduction course which will wet your appetite for learning how to make your own beads. Lampworking (beadmaking) is a magical art where you melt glass and create your own beads.

$250 includes all materials

The class includes:
Basic studio safety, overview of tools & glass alchemy, how to pull glass for decorating, melting glass for round beads, applying dots and spots, controlling heat to leave raised elements, layered dots patterns, bubbles as elements, concepts of transparency and opacity with design, and encasing basics

Beads cycle in the kiln overnight so completed beads will either be collected by yourself the following day or alternatively for an additional fee Born to Bead can clean your beads and post them through to you.

On average a student will make 10 – 20 beads

If there are 3 or more of you in a group you can book this course on a day or evening that would suit you and have a private session.
