'Lampwork' is the name give to the technique that uses a bench mounted torch powered by gas to melt rods of glass. You can melt the glass onto a 'mandrel' to make beads or, using tools, make free form shapes. Watch the video to see how its done!

“​I welcome commissions and can work with you to create something truly unique out of glass. Bridal projects particularly welcome.”

As well as selling my work in The shop at Sneinton Market I offer bead making workshops in my studio for people who want to try their hand at hot glass making. You can experience the thrill of melting glass directly in the flame and manipulating it into various shapes and designs. Check out details of available workshops on the website 

“Rosie is an excellent tutor with knowledge experience and patience. It's a must if you like to try your hand at different crafts. Rosie is a friendly and welcoming person who has a lovely shop full of unusual items i'm sure you will not be disappointed”
