Glass Lampworking Course
 
COURSE OUTLINE
Discover the art of lampworking or flameworking glass with a torch. Our experienced tutor will guide you through the fundamentals of this ever popular craft through demos and individual tuition. There will be a plenty of hands on time. Beginners will focus on forming beautiful beads using a wide selection of colours and processes and for those with some experience more advanced forms may be created. Each person will have their own torch and could make 10 or more beads of their own designs in a day. A wonderful chance to try something new.
 
IMPORTANT! Due to the cooling down processes involved with all glassmaking it is not possible for students to take work home on the day it is made. Work needs to cool slowly in our kilns and may be collected at a later time by arrangement or carefully packaged and posted to you for £10 (Our cost, no more).

CATRIONA MACKENZIE

Catriona's passion for glass, came while studying for her Design and Applied Arts Degree at Edinburgh College of Art. Her work is created to be cheerful, bold and full of texture. Catriona would describe herself as a maker first - a skilled Craftswoman. She enjoys the process of making, and has spent the last 15 years honing her technique. She has studied at Alfred University, NY State, USA and has completed a 2 year Post-graduate diploma from the International Glass Centre, West Midlands. She has worked for other makers and taught in various institutions.

In 2013 she was honoured to win the Silver Award for Glass from the Craft & Design Magazine. In 2015 Catriona was awarded a place on the Crafts Council UK’s 'Hothouse 5' mentoring programme. This invaluable knowledge has helped her with her own Craft Business, and now has a lampwork and jewellery studio in the Old Market area of Bristol, England.  In 2016 the filmakers R&A Collaborations have picked Catriona as one of their artists to capture on film. This filming will commence in the early months of the year.
