Have you ever wondered how those beautiful glass beads that you have seen are made? Here is your chance to try making beads of your very own. Come experience the magic of melting glass!

Start Up Classes

These classes are for people who have not had any torch experience previously. Nothing is as exciting as making your own glass art! This is a fast paced single day experience focused on safety in the shop, making your first round beads and leaving with a basic knowledge of lampworking and the tools and materials used.

Students are expected to take this course three times before signing up for the Introduction to Lampwork series. The teacher will introduce new materials or techniques each time. 

There must be at least two students signed up to run a class so we encourage you to bring a friend. It's a fun experience to share. 

This class costs $100 for three hours of instruction. Torch rental is available afterwards for practice. Classes run on Saturdays from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm starting in February. Click on the link below to begin registration.
