The Art of Glass Cutting is simply that, an art.  It is fascinating, exciting, & empowering when you are successful, when you are not, it can stop you in your tracks and be very expensive.  With a few simple tricks, and patience,  you too can master  the Art of Glass Cutting.  Gregg will focus on circle cutting, curves, strip cutting and more.  There will be plenty of time for practice and personal attention!  After demos, conversation and practice, you will go home having a better understanding of techniques and tools that will make cutting glass a breeze.

There will be a $10 material fee, please bring this with you to class.
