Glorious Glass Engraving – Amanda Lawrence @ Nature in Art
Nov 17 @ 10:00 am – Nov 18 @ 5:00 pm

This course explores the wonderful and versatile craft of glass engraving with a drill.  It’s an opportunity for beginners to learn the basic techniques and for those who have attended a previous course to expand their skills.  Over the two days we will discover three different techniques, starting with surface engraving, moving on to intaglio (low relief) engraving and also exploring vitreography – printing from your engraving onto paper.  You will work on both flat glass and vessels and you will come away with at least one little masterpiece of your own making!
