Make It Your Own: Glass Etching Workshop
Don't just sigh over it on Pinterest, Design Sponge, or at West Elm, make it yourself!
The "Make It Your Own: Glass Etching Workshop" is your chance to create everlasting pieces of glass art, with no previous art-making experience needed.
In this workshop, you will learn how to etch glass, a chemical process that leaves a permanent, waterproof design on the surface of glass.
With images of your choosing, you'll transform reclaimed glass bottles into custom vases for your favorite stems, oil diffusers, decanters or amphorae for vinaigrette... The only limitation is your imagination. You may love your piece so much, you may decide it deserves to live on the mantelpiece as art!
What You Need to Bring:
* Two simple, 2-dimensional images that you'd like to create etchings from. Images should be no greater than 4"x4."
- Images can be print-outs from your computer, pages torn out from magazines, printed photos, pieces of wrapping paper, even pieces of fabric with bold graphics.
- Select images that aren't too complex, as you'll be tracing these images during the workshop.
What You Should Bring:
* Clothing to wear that you don't mind getting a bit dirty
The instructor will provide everything else!
Do I need experience working with glass, or making art, to attend?
No experience is necessary for this workshop. All instructions will be provided by the instructor. Manual dexterity and some hand-strength (cutting, tracing by-hand, etc.) is necessary however.
Is glass-etching dangerous?
We will review procedures for safe usage of chemical etching solution during the workshop, and will wear protective eyewear and gloves when chemicals are in-use. With responsible use, it's perfectly safe!
Can children participate?
Because we'll be working with a caustic chemical and glass, all participants must be 18+.
Is the venue T-accessible? Is there parking available?
The Presentation School Foundation Community Center is located in Oak Square, Brighton, and can be reached by the 57, 64, 501 and 503 busses. There is a free parking lot behind the Community Center for attendees. The workshop will be in the New Balance room, which is accessible from the parking lot, and down one level.
The workshop is scheduled for three hours. Will I need to stay the entire time?
Some students will complete their projects well before three hours have elapsed. Skill-level, complexity of the design, etc., will affect timing.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
If you've registered for one session and find you are unable to attend, you may register for the alternate session of the same class with 48-hour's notice, provided space is available.

What is the refund policy?
