What you'll do

Come along to the Blue Flame Workshed on the edge of the inspirational Felbrigg estate and learn to make your very own design beautiful glass beads. Starting with basic techniques we will progress over the 3 hour session working towards making your own final designs. Using high quality Italian glass in your favourite vibrant colours we will range from traditional decoration to more modern styles! As we go I will teach you a little about the history of glass bead making, from Anglo Saxon and Viking beads, to beautiful Venetian masterpieces, in my working studio with lots of opportunity to ask questions and release your creativity, hopefully having a lot of fun along the way! All materials and safety equipment is included and you will keep everything you make. Your glass beads will be available for collection the next day once cooled from the kiln overnight, or can be posted on to you at no extra cost.

Claire

I am a Glass Bead maker and Lampworker based in beautiful North Norfolk. I’ve been producing glass beads and jewellery inspired by our big blue skies and stunning countryside for 15 years, and teaching in my Blue Flame Workshed and taking flame working into schools for the past 12 years. A member of the UK Glass Bead Guild I’ve had some fabulous opportunities to learn from other great glass artists from all over the world, always learning new techniques to bring back to my Norfolk home. I love teaching both complete beginners and intermediate skill levels, with most of my Glass students starting off with ‘taster’ sessions and returning for full one to one lessons. Seeing what people create is so much fun though I warn you playing with glass is very addictive!
