Glass Engraving Classes with Katharine Coleman MBE

Term Dates: 25/09-11/12/2017; 08/01-26/03/2018
Monday Mornings at Morley College, London

This course provides a rare opportunity to learn glass engraving, its history, its tools and its many applications, classical and contemporary. Several different engraving techniques will be explored, from diamond point, through drill to wheel engraving. The course focuses on the development of practical skills alongside an appreciation of glass engraving itself not only as an artwork, but also as a sculptural object in light that throws colour and shadows, even providing the means for simple printmaking.
