Hello fellow Design Techies,

I was hoping you could help me out.

I have purchased a kit and I am trying to set up a lampworking (glass bead making) station in the D&T year 11 classroom for my jewellery students.

I do lampworking at home on my kitchen bench, but I would like the process to be within OH&S regulations and really limit the chances of the students blowing themselves up on my watch.

Do you know of any schools currently doing lampworking? Anyone I could ask for some advice in relation to gas bottles, extraction fans, molten glass ect?

Thank you in advance,

Lucy Bowtell,

Dromana Secondary College.
