Have a blast with sandblasting!
Use sandblasting to detail glass homewares
Discover a new medium while working with premade glass forms and sandblasting techniques to create a glass platter and set of coasters. Participants will choose from a coloured glass platter form, and a set of bevelled coasters and discover the process of protecting areas of glass to create images. Designs will be available in the studio for use or simple artworks may be brought from home to create your own design.
Lunch will be provided using all local organic produce and catered for any dietary requirements you may have. We also provide you with a divine treat for afternoon tea as well as tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course.
