Take your calligraphy and artistic skills to the next level with this brand new medium! In this live in-person class, you will learn how to use your hand engraver to turn ordinary objects into extraordinary pieces of art using calligraphy and florals. We will cover all the basics of how to engrave on glass, metal, and powder coated bottles, so that you can add unique personalizations to your show stopping gifts and events!
No experience is necessary. You can come in as a brand-spanking-new engraver and you will leave as an engraving pro after creating beautiful calligraphy and floral art on glass!
- 5 hours of instruction
- Engraving guide written by Rosie

You must supply your own engraver and burs. Rosie will have some on hand, but please come prepared. Check out the On-Site Supplies blog to order your supplies. You may bring your own wine or other bottles to engrave at the end of class.
