Make Your Own… Flameworked Beads

An introduction to bead making using torches.

In this half-day class, you will use soft glass coloured rods and focus on forming circular beads by pulling glass stringers and using these to apply patternation to the surface of the bead. Using smooth and textural designs, let your imagination take over and create your very own designer bead.

Beads you make have to be annealed overnight, so you will have to come back to pick up your work. Delivery options are available.

Why not push your skills further and let your imagination take over in our Sculptural Flame Working glass weekend course?

PLEASE NOTE – Morning class begins at  9.30, Afternoon class begins at 13.00. Each class is 3 hours.

9.30 – 12.30 / 13.00 – 16.00 / 3hrs / £40 / Age: 16+

We have been working hard to implement Covid-19 safety measures for our adult courses and workshops.

Although the content of our courses has stayed the same, we have followed government guidelines to make changes in how we deliver courses and workshops safely. We have put in place training and new procedures and protocols around social distancing, hygiene, handling of equipment and materials and PPE (personal protective equipment).

Please note that participants are asked to provide their own face-covering to walk through the building to get to their class and may be asked to wear their face-covering at certain times in class.

All our events are subject to regular risk assessments and while we currently expect to deliver these sessions it may be necessary to cancel for safety reasons if we deem it to be in participants’ best interests. Please refer to our full terms and conditions.
