About This Course
We also create 5 different projects that are inspirational and informative. Start with these and then let your imagination go wild!!!… (I always come up with more ideas for using my bottles as I cut them. The list can be endless and super fun!.)
Hello, I am Bronwen Heilman,
I have been working with glass since 1996, and I have been working with Bottle glass since 2007.
I love repurposing bottles into something useful for everyday use, and for gifts.
I have a lot of experience with this glass, and have figured out ways to increase your success rate at cutting bottles. We will learn 2 different methods, both very successful!!
This mini course is perfect for people just starting out in this journey, and for those more seasoned.
See you in class!
What You Will Learn
This is a great combination of a project driven course and a technique driven course.
You will learn how to cut bottles, how to polish the lip, and how to make some really fun projects.
There are 2 different methods.
One is more of a quick and dirty method. Pretty easy, and gets great results.
The second one uses a torch and other easy to find tools.
I personally use both of these methods all the time. One is not better than the other, just different.
Is this a good course if I have never cut bottles before, but I want to learn?
YES! This is a perfect beginner class, as well as a more advanced class. You will learn many ways to cut the bottle and many time saving tips.
I have never used a torch before. Is this the right course for me to start my recycling glass journey with?
YES! I think this course is perfect for you. Method 1 is a non-torch method.
Method 2 is best for people with experience and are comfortable using torches. (I do not go into how to set up a torch area in your studiio. Nor do I go into how to light the torch. Method 2 is best for people already trained on the use of torches.)
You will get excellent results using either method. (I personally use Method 1 a lot!!)
