We start from the very beginning. So much so that there's a page all about the shapes you can and can't cut, and which ones are easier than others. There's three slideshows to easily demonstrate the shapes to you, so that you can start cutting with a good idea of what is (and what isn't!) possible when cutting glass.
As ever, the tools you use are very important. To help you choose the type of cutter that's right for you there's an overview of the main types available, with buying advice if you need it.
For beginners who have never cut glass before, there's demonstrations on how to hold the cutter and make a good scoreline.
Once you've got the hang of that, there's detailed instructions on how to 'break', or 'run' the scoreline. Not just one method, but FIVE ways! This is to give you the choice that you'll need once you start making more complicated stained glass.
There's a page with photos showing you how to place the templates in such a way to save your precious glass.
And then, when you're feeling confident, there's a step by step lesson on cutting a glass circle. And that's without using an expensive circle cutter!
