Knowing how to drill small holes in glass opens up many design options for kilnformed works, whether they're strung, worn, connected, or suspended.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to set up a drilling station, how to mark and drill holes in different kinds of glass, and how and why to use a second bit to flare the hole.

Finally, we'll discuss considerations for firing a piece of glass once it's been drilled.
