Engraving On Glass, What a Wonderful World!


August 31 - September 5, 2020
All Levels
One-Week Session

Students will start with the basics and gain and understanding of Matteo Seguso’s particular method of engraving. They will be able to watch him work and gain insight into how he uses tools and wheels before trying it for themselves! Students will have the opportunity to use a lathe while learning to navigate the interchangeable spindles and fixed wheels. No engraving experience is required, but those with experience will be able to better refine their technique. Students should bring pictures, DVDs, books, or any other materials to inform their work. Students should also bring a personal project or idea and they will work to transform this project from paper to reality by the end of class. All skill levels are welcome.
