The intensive one-day workshop introduces you to the craft of traditional glass cutting on a diamond lathe. The workshops are suitable for people with no experience of working with glass. 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 cutting wheels and shown what they do, how they are used, health & safety issues and then supported through a series of practical exercises. You will learn how to cut lines, create patterns and oval lenses and end up producing your own glasses which you keep. Two hi-ball tumblers, made in 30% lead crystal at Cumbria Crystal are included in the cost, as is acid polishing to create a beautiful shine.
