Bill LeQuier and Mary Angus have been sandblasting on both blown and sheet glass in their Readsboro, VT studio since 1983. LeQuier and Angus will share glass carving and sandblasting techniques including an introduction to photo resist stencils. Workshop participants will experiment with frosting to deep carving on small glass tiles of varying thicknesses as well as cutting through the colored layer on flashed glass samples. Participants will try different resist materials and create samples to take home. Discussion will include the equipment and media involved in the sandblasting process.
