Glass Engraving and Decoration (Intermediate | 6hr | EXTRA)

1. Overview

Spend the day at Gray's School of Art discovering the art of glass engraving and decoration with an experienced tutor on hand.

This course will teach students introductory techniques, hints and tips on how to hand engrave glass.

2. What you will study

This course offers an opportunity to gain hands on experience in several surface decoration techniques, particularly diamond stipple and flexible drive, and develop an understanding of the glass engraving process.

Students will decorate several glass objects over the period of the day - we will provide a wine glass for you to decorate initially but students should bring in a selection of glass objects and some images, text or decorative references to use in part of their project.

Our experienced tutor will give demonstrations on basic glass engraving and diamond stipple techniques.
This course will take place in our jewellery workshop at Gray's School of Art.
