And we also meet Eben, who makes beautiful flamework objects from glass in his garden shed!

He shows us how he makes glass beads and tells us what he loves about working with glass.

In studio we'll be having a go at ' sandcasting' and while things heat up in the NCAD hotshop we head to the beach to make some giant sand art with some homemade tools.
