About the event

As a professional calligrapher, I have learned to apply my lettering skills to varied materials including engraving on glass. One of my favorite brand activations (for me and the businesses I work with) is fragrance engraving on-site. After a year and a half of practice, I've combined all of my knowledge into one class to teach you how to engrave on glass.

In this 2-hour course, you'll learn how to use a hand drill to engrave on glass. We'll cover the basics of how to use the tool, techniques for applying the design onto glass, using different size burrs (tips), and adjusting the pressure and speed of the engraver to achieve the result you desire. You'll have an opportunity to engrave on a flat piece of glass and round and curved objects.

Calligraphy experience is not necessary to take this class. We'll use lettering examples and basic drawings to learn how to use the engraver.

Supplies are not included in this class.

An engraver will be provided for class use and an option to purchase the tool after class. Glass sheets and other varied materials like bottles and glassware will be available for students to use during and at the end of class. Worksheets are also included.

Please arrive early to order a cocktail and some snacks before class begins!
