Sharon has been hard at work learning fun, new mosaic techniques. Watch for new classes in our upcoming newsletters, or on our Facebook page.
Glass on Glass Direct Method
During this class, you will make a 10x12 inch "glass on glass" mosaic. Choose from our patterns or design your own. This project teaches the direct method. Most materials provided, including the frame. Cutting skills recommended, but not required. This project cannot be finished in a few hours, so there will be homework. *Grout session will be scheduled during class.
Whimsical Groutless Mosaic
In this new class, you will be working with new glues to create a groutless mosaic using beads, Van Gogh glass, and scrap glass (Provided by Prism). Students are encouraged to bring their own embellishments to personalize their creation. Embellishments may include, but are not limited to vintage/costume jewelry, beads, broken tiles, seashells, etc. Stop in to see the example! (Additional goodies will be available for purchase.)
*Glass cutting skills preferred, but not required*
History of Mosaics
A lecture to familiarize you with the history of mosaics thru the ages, a discussion of the tools and techniques used in a variety of styles, a "show and tell" about materials, their advantages and disadvantages, and a question and answer period. (Included in this class is a $15.00 voucher toward the purchase of glass for your first project.) Limit 8 students.
