Glass Bead-Making Workshops - 5 1/2  hours, including a break for lunch 

£105 for one person
£150 for a pair, taking it in turns to use the torch. Bring a friend!

 

This workshop will cover the basics of bead-making on a torch (lampworking), and give you the opportunity to create your own unique beads. You'll have the benefit of a fully kitted-out studio and six years of bead-making experience while I guide you through the process. You'll leave with some beautiful and interesting pieces of work, as well as an excellent foundation in a new skill. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided throughout the day, but please bring your own packed lunch as there aren't many locations locally to buy food. There is a kitchen with facilities (microwave, toaster, fridge) if you would rather bring something to heat up.

My workshop is situated in the beautiful Nantlle valley in North Wales. 

There's a lovely quarry opposite that's great to explore, and the Pant Du vineyard & cafe is just up the road.
