Framed Geometric Design Sandblasting

August 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Framed Geometric Design Sandblasting

Learn how to use the technique of sandblasting* to create meditative home décor.

Each student receives a glass picture frame to work on. Students will use tape and stickers to create a design using radial symmetry* on their glass. The design is mandala inspired! The students sandblast their glass to make the design permanent. Once the sandblasting is complete the stickers are removed to reveal the frosted design! At JDraper Glass, only the sandblasting classes allow you to take home your artwork on the same day you create it.

*Sandblasting is the removal of glass using fine grains of sand with compressed air to create a matte finished surface.

*Radial Symmetry is creating a symmetrical balance around a central point. This type of balance is found in nature like snowflakes and in human-made objects like Gothic Style Cathedral windows.

**Participants under 12 will need a parent or guardian to operate the sandblaster for them. No children under 12 will be able to handle the sandblasting tool.

Cheese Platter

Blow a huge bubble & spin it into a platter! Our instructors will guide you to roll into color, heat the glass and use a variety of the glass blowers’ tools. Then, using gravity & centripetal force, spin the glass until it opens into a platter (10-12” wide)
