Lampwork Tutorials

These ‘how to make’ lampwork tutorials written by me – Manda are all based around my own work with cabochons.

All the tutorials feature our own mandrels and some specialist tools. We have designed the mandrels and sourced the tools alongside the techniques and designs that I have developed in my work over my now 14 years of beadmaking!

The tutorials, all in detailed step by step photographs and written instruction will help in all aspects of glass beadmaking. But do remember that the key to making glassbeads and cabochons will always lie with heat control and an understanding of the process.

The biggest tip I can give anyone learning to work with hot glass is to spend time understanding what you are doing – understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’ is key to furthering your skills and developing your own work.
