Start them young!
I had the pleasure of welcoming 12-year-old Wini to the workshop on Saturday - she’d asked for a taster session with me for her birthday treat, and we had a very enjoyable afternoon at the torch flame!
As you probably already assume, lampwork glass beadmaking isn’t a pursuit for small children, which is why 12 is the minimum age for my course participants, and only then with parental supervision (up to age 16). Wini made up a twosome with her mum, Corina, and they enjoyed working side by side.
Would YOU like to let fire inspire at the torch flame? I’d love to welcome you to my four-torch workshop here in rural East Sussex.
