Glass Lampwork Bead Workshop

Learn to use a torch to create your own glass beads
52-56 Mollison Street, Kyneton VIC, Australia

In this all-day glass workshop, your teacher Pauline will guide you through how to lampwork your own molten glass beads!

This lampworking workshop is held in The Old Auction House’s glass studio in Kyneton, Macedon Ranges, perfect for a day out where you will make up to 15 of your own glass beads and enjoy a beautiful organic lunch.

You will learn the tools and materials required as well as the type of glass and embellishments that you can use to make lampwork glass beads on a torch in this exciting glass bead making class for beginners.

You will start by melting glass rods and manipulating the glass over a burner to make glass beads then you will decorate the surface of your coloured glass beads with glass dots and drizzles to create patterns of different colours. You can also adorn your beads using glass coloured frits.

Once you have your colours sorted you’ll learn how to shape them into round, bicone, flat or square bead shapes and be taught how to use moulds to help get the perfect shape! Pauline will explain how beads are annealed and you will be able to either take your beads home or collect them at a later date depending on your choice, or your teacher can post them out to you.

A delicious lunch will be provided created from all local organic produce and able to cater for any dietary requirements you may have. You will also be provided with a divine afternoon treat and tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the day.

The workshop costs include all materials required and all tools will be provided in the studio for use by participants.
