During the workshop, you will learn the basics of engraving. Glass engraver Alie Winters has been engraving on commission for companies and individuals for 37 years.


You will start with a trial piece on a flat glass plate. Then you can get used to the equipment and get an idea of what you can achieve. You will then design your own drawing, to be engraved on a drinking glass. You can use various types of cutters which all have a different function. Before you know it, you will go home with a beautiful, self-made creation.


You will use engraving machines and will also receive protective equipment to use. Participation is at your own risk and participants must follow safety instructions.


Engraving dates back to prehistoric times. Engraving is the predecessor of etching. Unlike etching, where the drawing is obtained by acid action, engraving involves scratching the drawing directly into the glass. An engraver uses a hand pen with a diamond stylus.


Alie Winters of Lemsterglas engraves by hand. She learned the trade as an apprentice from master glass engraver Jaap Deen in Sloten and is happy to share her knowledge during the Ambacht in Beeld Festival.
