November 7 @ 7:00pm – Make & Take – Etched Pint Glass

Learn to etch glass with stencils and chemicals Tuesday, November 7th at 7:00pm!

You’ll take home a pint glass with something you’ve etched on it. I’ll have designs to choose from, or you can bring a thumb drive with a black and white graphic file on it. I recommend choosing something fairly simple at first. Ages 16 & up.

You’ll also learn about preparing your file for the vinyl cutter (Cricut), and cutting vinyl.
