The Rayzist Sandcarving Workshop is a hands-on class taught by top industry leaders, designed to train you in basic to intermediate Sandcarving techniques. You will receive personalized instruction on a range of topics, from producing your own photomask to creating multi-stage carvings.

Education is a top priority at Rayzist Photomask. Our workshops are designed as Hands-On teaching: learning the process of photoresist, Sandcarving spirit bottles, painting different surfaces, properly blasting optical crystal to reach high profits.

The 2-day workshop consists of five projects. Each project is specifically designed to learn specific applications and sandblasting techniques. Three of the five projects will consist of color fill application.
