The Glass Etching Workshop is a 1.5 hour class where participants learn how to work with etching cream, a powerful product that etches into any glass surface to produce a frosted effect. First a simple stencil is drawn on the reverse of vinyl paper, and cut by hand using scissors or a craft knife. The stencil is then applied to the glass surface, and glass etching cream applied for a specified period of time. The etching cream is washed away, stencil removed and you are left with a fantastic personalised creation! Alternatively you can try your hand at painting the etching cream freehand on to the glass surface to create a more organic design. Participants will create their own personalised glass etched candle votive or mini mason jar to take home, and Glass Etching Kits will be available for purchase after the workshop.
