Glass etching class set for arts center

A two-series glass etching class will be from 1 to 3 p.m. April 1 and 8 at Southern Indiana Center for the Arts, 2001 N. Ewing St., Seymour.

Debra Richard, who has owned Blackthorn Design Studio since 1985, will lead participants through the making of a stencil that will be pressure sandblasted onto glass. The studio is a commercial art/graphic design business in Columbus.

Tuition is $55 for nonmembers, and arts center members will receive a 20 percent discount. The price includes masking material, patterns, two glass pieces for projects and all instructions. Participants will need to bring an X-acto or craft cutting knife with plenty of No. 11 blades.

The April 1 piece is a test piece. The April 8 piece is more refined. This class does not use etching crème. The pieces will be taken back to the artist’s studio to be pressure sandblasted.

Class size is limited to 12. To reserve a spot, preregistration and prepayment are required no later than Saturday.

Individual membership for one year starts at $25.
