Let fire inspire

Captivated by the magic of working with glass, Rebecca Weddell creates beautiful and unique lampwork beads and offers a range of beadmaking courses.

Your own hot glass workbench!

Got some experience at lampwork glass beadmaking, but nowhere to spread your creative wings?

At Let Fire Inspire I offer blocks of ‘torchtime’ for beadmakers to come along and use the workshop as their own to work on their independent projects. Glass, tools and equipment are all supplied, and regular torchtime slots run on the third Thursday of most months, with additional diary slots available on demand if you find a Thursday isn’t suitable for you!

Here’s what some of my torchtimers have got up to recently:

Rosie’s chosen project was to make accent beads to complement these beaded beads she’d made.

I was delighted to meet the finished necklace at the Big Bead Show - it’s beautiful!

Theresa made these bright beads for her grandson. I love how she’s put them together in this easy-to-wear necklet.

More of Theresa’s beads. This is an excellent haul in a two-hour time slot (other length slots are available - do just ask!).

All of the work shown above is entirely the work of the people who made them. For torchtime sessions I provide supervisory support, and am of course on hand if people have any questions - but there is no formal tuition involved.

If you’re not ready for independent torchtime quite yet - why not have a look at taking a course with me? I’d love to welcome you to Let Fire Inspire!
