WKS822: Custom Glassware - Laser and Sandblast
Class Number 1950-103672
In this workshop, you will learn how to etch designs into glassware using a laser-cut template and the sandblaster!
Your experienced instructor will show you different methods for creating your template and the best way to tackle your designs. You will wrap a glass beer mug with a masking film and use the Epilog laser and rotary attachment to cut out a design of your own creation, then use the sandblaster to create a deeper etching. You may also choose to spray paint the etched areas before removing the masking film.
Please have a simple black-and-white design in a digital file to use for this workshop. TechShop will provide one mug for each student, masking film, and a few colors of spray paint.
This class is a perfect complementary course to your Laser Rotary SBU or Media Blasting and Powder Coating SBU. Brush up on your skills or introduce new tools into your maker repertoire!
Bring a flash drive or portable drive with your image file. All other materials will be provided
