Last year at Let Fire Inspire ended on a high note with a bespoke all-day course tailor-made to cover specific techniques to suit a brace of goldsmiths with new projects in the development stages! The three of us enjoyed our time at the torch flame, working with inclusions and moving from beadmaking techniques to making cabochons. We all got a lot out of the day!
2019 has started in a similar busy fashion - so far this year four students have come for taster sessions in lampwork glass beadmaking, and tomorrow morning is scheduled for returning torchtimers to work independently on their own projects.
Did you know that you can now book courses online? I’m very happy with the scheduling and payment software that’s behind the system, and it’s working very well. If you are a recipient of one of the gift vouchers that whizzed from the Let Fire Inspire workshop to your Christmas stocking, you can book your slot online too - just enter your unique voucher code and you won’t even be asked for any payment details!
The next Journey into Beadmaking course begins on Wednesday February 27 and runs for five weeks, at two hours a time. In this course you will make a collection of unique lampwork glass beads and a selection of jewellery using your beads. You will get to grips with both glass beadmaking and jewellery-making techniques on a fabulous journey into this captivating craft!
