I am honored and grateful to be teaching again. It brings me great joy to share these ancient techniques with a modern Twist. It’s amazing something so simple as a bead can help people work together in harmony around the world. Please come join us in this beautiful setting of Northern Italy for a small but wonderful brand new glass bead conference.
On the occasion of the first itinerant biennial of glass beads which will take place in August 2022 in Chiusa di Pesio, Italy, we are very pleased to announce that you will be able to attend a workshop with the American artist Beau Anderson, who will transmit his know-how and his art during two days!
Beau Anderson, born in Bellingham, Washington on April 4, 1980, was introduced to torchwork at the age of 7 by his mother “Sage”, Beau has now been a torchworker for 35 years and has been teaching for 30 years. He has demonstrated and taught the art of flame glass throughout the United States and the world, both in private studios and in renowned schools such as the Corning Museum of Glass, Pratt Fine Arts School, Pittsburgh Glass Center, Pilchuck Glass School, Masters Class for Bead and Button Expo, etc.
Beau is passionate about travel, new experiences and nature, which is reflected in his art and teaching. Concerned with the sustainability of his approach, Beau strives for optimal efficiency and positive impact in his production methods and teaching techniques.
Beau is a people person and enjoys answering questions on all matters related to glass. Beau is known for his technical versatility, precision, charisma and dedication to his craft.
Beau’s talent for crafting highly detailed pieces, the fluidity of execution in his work and the amount of varied themes used, has resulted in his pieces being collected around the world.

– The History Of Beads Book by Lois Sherr Dubin
– Beads Of Glass by Cindy Jenkins
