This class is for students who have taken the 'Art of Glass Cutting' offered in the Fall of 2014 or who have previous glass cutting experience. During this class you will have an oppurtunity to continue working on your glass cutting. The focus however, will be how to use and care for a glass table grinder. This tool will aid you when exact fitting of individual glass pieces & precision is critical.  

This class is to catch up the previous 'Art of Glass Cutting' students who did not have a session on grinder use. If you have previous glass cutting experience and would like become familiar with the use of a grinder, this class is for you too!

There is a $10 studio & materials fee payable at the class.  Glass cutters are available for all students. We have multiple grinders available to share.  If you want to use your own glass cutter & pliers bring them with you.

No beginners and students must be over 18 years of age.

INSTRUCTOR: Gregg Mesmer has been cutting glass professionally for decades. He and his wife, Diane Bonciolini, moved to Bainbridge Island in 1977 and started the iconic Mesolini Glass Studio.  The techniques they have used over the years are varied and diverse. Gregg's expertise is in techniques involved in fabrication, not only  glass cutting, but also leading, soldering and glazing of stained glass windows. Over the years, he has taught for Northwest Art Glass, the Bainbridge park district and Olympic College.
