Description: We think Tanya Veit sums this video up best:
"I don't care what you think you know about class cutting, this video is unbelievable. Peter is amazing. I remember when we were in the film studio setting up to shoot and I said to Peter, 'grinders are in the other room' and he looked at me funny and said 'I don't use grinders.' Meanwhile, I am looking at all these crazy squiggle and horseshoe shapes that he plans to demonstrate on table to cut and break out. He did it. Flawlessly. I was memorised by it, to be honest. If everyone could cut glass like that, you could make any fused or stained glass project. I've never seen anyone cut and break glass like that. Not even close."

Best instructional video EVER review by Bekah on 7/6/2018
This is the best instructional video I've ever watched, and I've watched quite a few. Instructions are clear, there's no fumbling around or digressions, and there are a few nice graphics interspersed, such as how scoring physically works. I've watched it all the way through twice. My only gripe is that AAE won't allow downloading, so watching it twice cut into my monthly Verizon data allowance.
Excellent! review by Kim on 11/19/2017
I’d have to travel and pay for lodging just to get a class in cutting....and then I wouldn’t remember most of it later! I can go look at this whenever I want!
Improved my skills review by Thecrackeddishb on 7/15/2017
I'm so happy I bought this video. This has improved my knowledge of why glass breaks at certain points. It's made me faster in my cutting so I can get more done. Peter really knows his cutting. So pleased to have that knowledge imparted to me. Thanks

Awesome! review by JULIE on 5/24/2017
I am glad I purchased this and can have access to it when I need it. So much information to absorb in one sitting. Will be referencing this over and over for the next several months.
Peter a wizzard at cutting glass review by Debbie on 4/18/2017
I've been cutting glass for years, Peter is fantastic. I just wanted to learn more.
Simply Terrific! review by Pam on 4/1/2017
Loved all the info. I cut lots of glass, but Peter reminds us of good techniques we should all be using. Mostly this video gave me the confidence to know I'm cutting glass efficiently & correctly.
A real master review by Shannon on 3/28/2017
Peter is an excellent teach and I highly recommend taking a glass painting class with him in person as he doesn't stop at teaching technique. He will drive you forward as an artist by saying "You can do better than that" (at which point, you wipe off the glass and start again!)
Wow! review by Jfish on 3/12/2017
I've been cutting glass for years. At least, I THOUGHT I knew how! PEter makes it seem just so easy. But his tips and examples are easy and make you feel you just need to go for it! Can't wait for his glass painting tutorial!
