We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, February 26, 2022.
Glass etching is a craft that was previously available only to professionals and skilled artisans, but it is now accessible to the general crafter, thanks to the formulation of etching cream. A relative newcomer to the craft world, etching cream is a fast and inexpensive way to create elegant designs on glass. And with just a little know-how and the right supplies, you can make beautiful, personalized etched glass pieces that are perfect for gift giving and home decorating. Supply list available online and will print on registration receipt. Instructor: Ellen Miffitt Note: does not work on Pyrex
