Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation offers glass cutting workshop
Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation is hosting a glass cutting class from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sept. 21 at its resource center, 744 Rebecca Ave., Wilkinsburg.
Regis Will with Vesta Home Services LLC will instruct "Demonstration Workshop: Glass Cutting and Window Glazing."
Those attending will learn basic glass cutting skills, with the goal of fitting the glass into a wooden window sash and also learning how to secure and seal the glass with glazers, points, and glazing putty.
Will has conducted previous workshops with the PHLF.
The resource center, a former auto-repair junkyard converted into a state-of-the-art building, includes a lecture theater, conference room, workshop break-out room and a studio and gallery for a sculptural artist.
The building serves as an example of an adaptive reuse, according to its website.
Workshops are free to PHLF members. Non-members pay $10.
RSVPs are appreciated by emailing email@example.com or calling 412-471-5808, ext. 527.
