Full price for workshops £60-£90 per person. More details below.

I’ve been passionate about melting glass since 2007 and I have been lucky enough to be a full time bead maker since 2010 (or was it 2011? I forget, but it was a whole lot of beads ago!).  I have been a demonstrating artist at the UK Flame Off, I’m a Trollbeads accredited lampworker and have demonstrated on their behalf in stores all over the UK, I sell my own lampwork jewellery to individual customers and shops all over the world.

Helping people make their first glass beads is magical – I love to see their excitement as they realise they can do it too.  We all know beads don’t actually grow on trees but seriously, who knew you could make them yourself?!

I have 2 lampwork workshops for absolute beginners to choose from, my studio is in Malvern, Worcestershire, UK, postcode WR14 2RG.

Beads for Bracelets is for people who fancy trying out a new activity with a group of friends, I’ve got room for up to 4 people.

If you’re interested in taking up lampwork as a hobby and want to find out about setting up a lampwork area at home and make your first beads with me then Beginning Beadmaking is for you, 1-2 people.

All workshops last 3 hours.  The £15 price is the deposit required with booking.  See the product listing for total price.

I teach on Wednesday, Friday and some Saturdays.  Morning 10am to 1pm or afternoon 2pm to 5pm.  The calendar shows available dates – you must contact me to book your date.

Beads for Bracelets is my 3 hour workshop for groups of up to 4 friends. You will need steady hands and a willingness to play with fire!

You will receive around one hour’s tuition in making simple glass beads in allllll the colours, and I’ll show you how to combine colours and decorate your beads with spots and dots –  then you’ll have unsupervised time at the flame to make as many beads as you can to fill up your bracelet.

Beads for Bracelets total price is £60 per person and includes all materials and a coloured pvc bracelet.  You will have the option to buy a silver bracelet to thread your beads onto.  Your beads need to spend the night in my kiln after the workshop so I will post them to you a day or two later.

Beginning Bead Making is my 3 hour class for 1 or 2 people who want to take up lampwork as a hobby at home and need some help getting started.

I will run through the equipment you’re going to need, where to get it from and how to use it. We will also talk about safety in the studio.

Once we light the flame I’ll show you how to make a bead and get it round, then we’ll work through a few basic techniques and I’ll teach you how to pull stringer, add dots, work with frit (ground glass), make a bead of more than one colour and do some simple shaping using tools and gravity.   The beads you make will need to go into my kiln overnight to be annealed so I’ll post them to you a day or two later.  You will also receive any beads I make during the lesson.

Beginning Bead Making total price is £90 for one person for 3 hours of my undivided attention.  If you come with a friend the price will reduce to £75 each.  Deposit to be paid at time of booking, balance payable on the day.
