Glass Engraving with Liz Roessler

Join calligrapher Liz Roessler to learn the art of engraving using a hand-held micro-drill in this interactive workshop! She will patiently guide students through project prep, workspace set-up, all the best techniques, and pro tools for measuring / aligning lettering on various objects.


Liz will interactively demonstrate engraving different lettering styles for monograms, initials, names, favorite words, and seasonal greetings.


Examples of popular items that can be engraved are glass, vases, cutting boards & bowls, perfume bottles, aluminum tumblers, wine & spirits bottles, stones & more! Engravings may then be filled with a metallic wax finish in silver or various shades of gold.

Your tool kits include everything to continue to engrave projects on your own and are yours to keep.

Bring your favorite items to create gifts and personalize.  Yetis, aluminum tumblers, perfume bottles, wine and spirits, and assorted glassware are just a few examples of what you can engrave.  There will also be an assortment on hand to choose from.   

Maximum class size: 8
