The Pacific Pyros are a group of glass beadmakers based in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada, with many members from all across B.C. as well as Canada.
Our organization was formed in 2001 when local beadmakers, feeling alone in their endeavours, started making contact with others who were also working with glass in small studio settings, in order to share information, problem-solve, and learn new skills from each other.
Since then, this group of glass artisans has been bringing beadmakers together for demonstrations, shows, exhibits, and informal social gatherings.
We are an organization dedicated to the education and promotion of lampwork and glass beadmaking.
