An Intensive 4-day class taught by Norm and Ruth Dobbins!
In this exciting, hands-on class you'll learn all 3 major glass etching techniques, many special 'trade secret' techniques, all about glass etching equipment and important business information about glass etching.
In this seminar, you will also learn about design for all 3 types of glass etching - even if you are not and 'artist'. In addition, photo resist etching techniques are presented and you will complete at least 2 projects using photo resist. A very important feature of the class is discussion of the business of glass etching, including how to price and sell your work, marketing suggestions and product ideas from architectural glass to awards.
