Beyond Beginners class (You should already have a basic knowledge of how to make a bead)

We can cover some different types of clear encasing, surface decoration, using silver glass, making twisties, dichroic application, murrini making and application. The class topics are up to you, tell me what you want to focus on and that's the direction we'll head in. Glass will be supplied.


What to bring:

If you have your own safety glasses, bring them along as well as any beadmaking tools you may have and wish to use.

Apron optional, or wear old clothes that you don't care about. Please wear closed in shoes and tie back long hair. Don’t wear loose fitting clothing. We will be working with an open flame and safety is of the highest importance.

Your materials fee is included in the class cost. Tools and extra glass will be available to purchase.

Torch Time

If you know how to make beads but you don't have a torch set up at home, you can rent torch time in my studio. Paid by the hour, you won't be supervised but I'll be there if you need me. Includes use of fuel, tools and also annealing of your beads.

Contact me to organise dates/times.


I'm also available to teach in South East Melbourne
