Do you have a desire to make your own glass beads?

We offer two types of courses where you can come and  learn how to create a glass bead.

Taster Session

This is a 2 hour session where Kiki will show you how to make some simple beads. You will be shown how to make the basic bead and then add simple patterns using coloured glass. Your beads will be fired in the kiln and sent to you when they have been annealed and cleaned.

This session costs £60 and is inclusive of materials, firing, cleaning and tuition.

One Day Course

During the day, you will learn how to make glass beads with a variety of different patterns. This will include adding my signature swirl onto the bead. All beads will be annealed in the kiln and cleaned before being sent to you.

This workshop costs £150 and a typical day is 10am-4pm. The cost is inclusive of materials, firing, cleaning and tuition.

Tea/coffee will be provided but please bring a packed lunch. There is a co-op within walking distance from our house.
