Ticket Information:

  • Lampwork Class: $130.00


Jo Tricker Glass

Come and learn the ancient and fascinating method of creating flameworked glass beads (also known as lampworking) where glass is melted in a flame using an oxygen and LPG torch.

Learn how to make basic doughnut beads and round beads in colours of your choice, and how to decorate your bead with dots, spots, and stripes. In addition, you will learn about safety, tools, equipment, proper lighting and annealing glass beads for strength and durability. All glass materials, use of equipment, gas, kiln firing, and safety gear is included. As your beads need to be processed in a kiln afterwards, they can not be taken home on the day. The cost of *cleaning and posting your beads is also included in the fee. Expect to make 4 - 10 beads in this class depending on ability.

These classes are a private lesson for two hours working at your own pace with glassmaker Jo Tricker. Tuition is conducted in Jo's own 75 sq m studio in the Judea Industrial Estate. Minimum age requirement is 12 years of age - parents are welcome to stay with their child.
