Glass bead making, also known as Lampworking is a rare craft, using specialist equipment.

We are offering you a fantastic introduction to the beautiful craft of making unique, handmade glass beads.

You will develop unique creative skills as you learn to use a hot blow torch flame whilst simultaneously twisting rods of coloured glass into mesmerising beads.

We have two spaces available every 30 minutes, come with a friend or on your own for this experience you will not want to miss.

Please note; If you book a single place, we will offer the other place to another customer.

All materials and equipment are included.

Please be advised to come with your hair tied back and loose jewellery removed.

Your beads will need to be left to cool on the day.  We will contact you when they are ready to be collected.

Please check out our beaded jewellery workshop where you can incorporate the gorgeous beads you make into your very own handmade project.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

If you require any more information, please chat to our friendly staff on 01920 466446 or email us enquiries@artshedarts.co.uk.
