Jennifer Walkovich, Guest Instructor.
Come sharpen your glass cutting skills! In this class the Morton Portable Glass Shop will be featured. For over 30 years the Morton System has provided hobbyists and professional glass artists the ultimate tool for producing accurate and repetitive glass pieces. A brief portion of class will be dedicated to a discussion on cutting tools available and proper cutting technique, as well as how to easily cut a perfect circle. Many styles of glass cutters will be available in class for participants to sample. Students will learn how to set up the Morton System for cutting strips, geometric shapes, angles, and how to quickly cut diamonds and triangles from strips and squares. Experienced glass artists all agree you will benefit greatly by understanding all the Morton System has to offer. Hands-on cutting and demonstrations will strengthen your Morton skills. Using 96 COE, students will create a large geometric piece which we will fuse for you. Students need to bring: Glass cutter, safety glasses, running pliers, miscellaneous other favorite hand tools.
All materials included.
