Last weekend I saw a mini glass flameworking (lampworking) workshop at Mini Makerfaire in Vancouver. I didn't get a chance to try it, but it looks like fun, and something that is perfect for a place like the MakerSpace, here in Victoria BC. The workshop and materials were provided by ootay glass.
The craft involves heating glass rods (and beads?) in front of a torch, and sticking different coloured pieces together. Here are some nice results from wikipedia:

The workshop providers had an array of materials.
