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.
