        I would love one in Manchester too - although don't think other half would appreciate me having another aspect of my already addicted hobby :-)

          I attended a course with Mike Poole with Tillerman beads a couple of years ago in Todmorden.
          RedHotSal and Diana East are in Leicestershire.

          There's a big lampworkers event in Towcester, UK Flame Off on 16th and 17th April 2010, well worth a visit.
          Bead Shop, 91 Liverpool Road, Penwortham, Preston, PR1 0QB, Lancashire. Mon-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat 10am-4pm, Sunday 11am-3pm.

            I also run lampwork courses and classes as well as torch and kiln rental from my place in Hampshire.

              You could do worse than to visit the British Lampwork website - many members there teach and they are in various places all around the country. They are all known, experienced lampworkers.

              If you find a course for beadmaking, do be sure to check it will offer what you need. Ask about the tutor - how many years experience do they have? Ask about the location - is there adequate *mechanised* ventilation, to draw away the dangerous fumes (and no, an open window doesnt count!). Ask if they are insured to teach - lampworking can be dangerous on occasion and you need to know you are covered.

              Reputable teachers will have no problems answering these questions and any others you may have before you book up your course. If they cannot / will not answer, then that might be a red flag to keep on searching. Because there are lots of people jumping on the teaching bandwagon these days - so you are better to travel and find the right studio / teacher that to take a lesson based only on location IMHO

                lampworking classes

                You dont see classes prescheduled in November because to teach a good class you need some snowpack to go study and that isnt always guaranteed in many parts of the state.Also, covert knows his stuff
