Glass bottle cutting for beginners - Rochester

Glass Bottle Tumblers


Our three hour workshop will enable you to learn and practice the skill of glass bottle cutting.
We will demonstrate our tried and tested glass cutting and sanding method and you can expect to make at least two or three items of your choice during the workshop.

Each workshop is limited to 6 participants to ensure that we can provide you with maximum attention and support whilst you cut and sand your own glass bottle drinking tumbler, storm lantern top and/or egg cups. The choice is yours!

The aim of this course is to have fun learning a new skill in a relaxed and supportive environment.
We hope that this new skill will enable you to continue this craft in your own home.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

We will provide all of the equipment needed for the workshop and will also send you home with a uniquely designed storm lantern base to go with the items you have made free of charge.

We really enjoyed the glass bottle cutting workshop today.

Janet and Claire are both excellent tutors, very patient and eager to ensure everyone gets the best out of the day.

It feels amazing when your first bottle accurately breaks apart and everyone cheered when it happened!

We are so pleased with the glasses we made and these will be well used.

All in all, the day was very relaxing, informative, well organized and enjoyable.

Thankyou Janet and Claire!

I had a lovely afternoon cutting bottles under Janet and Claire's brilliant tuition, they were very patient with me!
There were a lot of bottles to choose from in different colours and we made a variety of different items including a storm lantern.

Booked this as surprise for my best friends birthday. Ended up only being the two of us so was fortunate enough to have exclusive help from Janet and Claire who were brilliant all the way through. Both very kind and helpful with anything you needed assistance with. We both walked away smiling and a new skill to play with. Would totally recommend to anyone who wants to learn something new and interesting.
We both left with beautiful pieces which can easily be given as thoughtful gifts. Who doesn’t love anything hand made. Would definitely attend more classes in the future.
Thank you Claire and Janet.
