I thought it best to go to the show and see if I liked Lampworking before spending out on the kit?
Well I think I spent about 3 hours actually playing with glass and fire........!
I would like to thank the lad from World Of Beads whose name I have forgotten (I hope he will forgive me... a senior moment) who was looking after us novices on the initial table (torch with just lpg gas) and then on to the hotter better torch (more control of the flame using lpg and oxygen)
|First attempt at making a bead|
|Pretending I know what I'm doing?|
Here are the beads that I managed to make, the small blue one was the first.... its only about 10mm but at least it's round.
|My first ever bead|
|Getting clever and encasing opaque with clear glass in the first 4!|
