October 2003 - Beads from 5 day Beginners Beadmaking Class Sept/Oct 03.160 viewsI have just returned home from my first Glass Beadmaking class with the first lampwork beads that I have ever made.... What fun!!! The class was organised through Albion Glass in Brisbane and our teacher was Kathryn Wardill. The beads cover what we learnt during the five days starting from the little slugs on the left...

October 2003 - Beads from 3 day Advanced Beadmaking Class Oct 03.163 viewsA word of warning... Glass Beadmaking is highly addictive...!

I was only going to attend Kathryns beginners class, but once I got the hang of the melting glass and winding it onto mandrels to make pretty beads thing, I just had to sign up for her advanced class... Fortunately, I have a wonderful hubby who didn't mind me spending way more than we had originally planned...

These beads are from the 3 day Advanced class that followed.

October 2003 - Beads made at home.181 viewsBefore I left Kathryns class, I made sure that I bought everything I would need to be able to set myself up to make beads once I got home. A Hothead torch, some glass, some tools, eye wear etc... Another thing I learned... You can never have too much glass...
