Hot-Poppin’: up-cycling glass bottles

For: beginners
Tutor: Laurel Kohut

Course Outline

This class will teach you how to ‘up-cycle’ glass bottles and jars into fun and functional vases, tumblers and jewellery. You’ll learn how to make these unique creations using techniques and materials that don’t require access to large grinding or cutting equipment, so once you’ve learned these skills you can get going in your home studio. It is suitable for absolute beginners.

The class will also explore various methods of surface decoration, such as mark making with a hand engraver, basic sandblasting stencils and low-fire glass decals.
