Lampwork glass class

Making can be both relaxing and rewarding, would you like to have a go?  Whether you are interested in learning something new or looking for a creative outlet lampworking glass is a great option.


The term 'lampwork' derives from when glass was melted in the flame of an oil lamp with the artist blowing air into the flame through a pipe or using foot-powered bellows. Now artists use oxygen and propane mix torches. Using the flame glass can be heated to a molten state and then worked in a solid form or blown in to vessels.

Had a fantastic time with Samantha making glass beads. The beads came out wonderfully and the whole experience was a real joy. Samantha is a great teacher and it was so fun doing something so different.
