Glass Bottle Cutting Workshop
December 17, 2016 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Come to the makerspace and learn how to cut glass bottles (wine bottles, beer bottles, etc) and turn them into cups, lights, candles, and various other items! This is an excellent way to make inexpensive and thoughtful holiday presents that are truly unique. It is also a great way to preserve a sentimental bottle such as a wine bottle from a wedding or other special occasion.
If there is enough interest, there can also be demonstrations for personalized etching, painting, and decorative soldering!
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own bottles. Thicker glass such as wine bottles tend to make for a better result! Sometimes thinner glass such as beer bottles have a tendency to split, but that doesn’t mean they cannot be successfully cut. We recommend bringing multiple bottles for pratice, as it is an art not a science. It’s not as easy as youtube makes it look!
All ages welcome! Children under 12 must have an adult chaperone.
All proceeds from the class are to cover materials cost, and extra will go towards purchasing equipment for the makerspace.
