You will learn how to produce your own permanent designs on glass in a friendly, relaxed and comfortable workshop. We will go through a range of clear options for you to decide your project. After an important health and safety talk, I will demonstrate stencilling and etching techniques using clear examples. These are designed to offer our guests a creative, productive and fun experience. You will practice them yourself and make something unique from a range of glass pieces available for you - with my guidance. You will be able to experiment with texture, investigate drawing or copying techniques and use stencilling to create an opaque, frosted design on glass. You will have a choice of what you would like to work on such as, drinking glasses, mirror, or flat glass pieces. Everyone goes home with a new learning experience and their own etched glass artwork.
