If you enjoy learning new skills, trying different craft techniques or have just wondered how it is done Julia runs taster classes for you to try etching glass for yourself.

These courses are designed to let you experience the design and decoration process involved in producing a piece of glassware decorated by the sandblasting technique.

Full and half day sessions are available.

Both sessions will take you through the entire process.

All basic materials and equipment are provided.

The classes are very small, so you will get individual attention throughout the session.

In a half day session we would aim to decorate a small piece of glass such as a tumbler or tea light holder, using the basic techniques to sandblast your own pattern onto the glass.

In a full day session once you have mastered the basics you can move onto a more complicated design or bigger piece such as a jug to go with your tumbler, or a vase, or even a small panel.

We also offer a companion day course where you can make your decorated panel up into a leaded glass panel to hang in a window.

Courses are run at a mutually convenient time.

For any enquiries or to book a session please contact Julia directly.
