Diamond wheel glass cutting – Cumbria Crystal

Description:

Level 1 and 2: Introductory & Intermediate Levels: 14 + years

These intensive one day workshops introduce you to the craft of traditional glass cutting on a diamond lathe. The workshops are suitable for people with no experience, or for people wishing to develop their skills. The maximum number of participants is four, ensuring you enjoy extremely high levels of personal support and supervision throughout the day. You will be introduced to a range of diamond wheels and shown what they do, how they are used, health and safety issues and then supported through a series of practical exercises to develop confidence. Creativity is key & Heather will demonstrate how designs are developed and transferred to glasses ready for the cutting process. You will learn how to cut lines, create patterns and oval lenses. Two hand blown Cumbria Crystal hi-ball tumblers are included in the cost, as is acid polishing to create the beautiful shine & refractive qualities.

Cost: £140 for one-day workshop (beginner and intermediate level)
