The Arizona Society of Glass Beadmakers (ASGB) is a group of like-minded glass beadmakers who support the following: 

  • Promote the art, education and creativity of lampworking

  • Connect, socialize, share and collaborate

  • Encouragement and support for new and experienced glass beadmakers alike

​The ASGB meets monthly in the Phoenix metropolitan area to: Share information on upcoming events, shows and classes; to discuss group business; and provide demonstrations of various bead making techniques.

The ASGB is proud to be the original supporter of the Beads of Courage (BOC) Program, and continues to collect bead donations at each meeting.  BOC helps children RECORD, TELL and OWN their stories of courage during treatment for cancer and other serious illnesses. ASGB members help by providing Act of Courage beads to mark milestones in children’s treatment journeys.

The ASGB is a proud Chapter member of the ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers). isgb.org
