More about…making glass beads

Flamework or lampwork – making glass beads

Lampwork (also know as Flamework) or glass bead making, is my new found passion.  Using a rod of glass, a hot head torch (and gas to light it), plus several different tools, you can create amazing glass beads.  I love wrapping the glass around the mandrel and letting it flow into shape.

I run beginner’s sessions here in Colchester.  These can be 1 to 1 or 1 to 2 if you’d prefer to share a torch and bring a friend!  I warn you it is addictive!  I also now run follow on classes, sculpted beads classes and a button bead workshop in development.
