Light Up with Lampwork

In the 14th century oil lamps were the only heat source available to artisans in Murano, Italy to create molten glass… yet they still managed to produce intricate glasswork. In modern times we turn up the heat as skilled artisans wield torches to wind glass around a steel mandrel.

No prior experience necessary but a liability waiver must be signed to participate.

Nortel Manufacturing Limited presents…

Introduction to Glass Bead Making – Beginner

Nortel - LampworkCome learn the basics of winding hot molten glass around a mandrel, creating classic bead shapes, placement of dots, pulling and using a stinger as you work on a Nortel® classic minor bench burner (a surface mix torch). Receive an overview of glass, tools, equipment and enjoy demonstrations on the use of tab beads, encasing and bead presses. Expect to take home (the next day – needs time to cool) a small amount of your own creations. As the class involves the use of an open flame, please wear 100% natural fibre (cotton), non-flammable clothing. Premium Fee $25 includes materials.
