Join glass bead artist Sarah Cordingley for a wonderfully creative & fun-filled time learning the techniques for making lampwork glass beads. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners and those wanting to improve their skills. During this session, Sarah will walk you through bead making techniques such as the application of spots and creating twists in the glass. Using colours you have picked yourself from our glass store, you will end the class having made your own unique glass beads which will be made up into earring sets.
Your beads will be annealed in the kiln overnight, Sarah will then make them into jewellery for you to collect the following week or we can post them to you for a small fee. Torch time is available at an hourly rate once you’ve graduated!
The class is made especially enjoyable by the setting; inside the grounds of the historic Red House Glass Cone. You could have lunch sitting by the canal or try our on site cafe. Take a walk around the beautiful historic building and visit the numerous other craft studios on site. Why not bring friends / family and make a day of it!
All materials and tools will be provided. No previous knowledge required. Please ensure you wear fully closed shoes and practical clothing.
