Event description

Description

Join me for a fun session learning to etch glass. Apply your own permanent designs to glassware. Create beautiful gifts, seasonal decorations, and fun yet functional household items.

I will begin the session by introducing a range of simple techniques to create and apply your own stencil design, then demonstrate the use of glass etching cream.

For the standard 3 hour sessions you will each be provided with a 20cm circular mirror and a tumbler. Additional items will be available to purchase on the day, better still please bring along your own glassware (charity shops and recycling bins are great places to look for inspiration!).

Chemical etching creates a permanent opaque surface, ideal for decorating functional items as they may be washed and heated to the manufacturers’ original specifications. Once you know the basics this is a technique that can be further explored at home. Etching cream is a particularly great way to transform plain household items, or why not visit your local charity shop and collect some glass objects with the potential to transform!


I'm a big believer in creativity being connected to a happy tummy... so there will be tea and cake provided. If you have any dietary requirements please let me know in advance.

FAQs

What's the minimum age for participants?

All under 16 year olds must be accompanied by a paying adult. We will be using craft knives and chemicals (gloves etc provided). There will also be a wide choice of stickers available which allow younger participants to create their own special designs.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We are a bit tucked away. Just come down the small drive between #52 and the school gate. There will be parking spaces on the drive. Alternatively the #21 Citybus service has a regular service just a 5 minute walk from the house.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email me at contact@jennyayrton.co.uk or call me on 07834 857 938

What should I bring to the event?

I will have a range of glassware for you to decorate, but if you have pieces that you would like to embelish then please do bring them. If you have something particular in mind then feel free to contact me before hand to check if it's do-able... especially if you want to buy some glassware to bring with you.

Equally if you have specific imagery that you would like to use on your items then drop me an email (ideally with a photo/web link for reference)... or bring a doodle or two with you!
