Get into the cherry blossom spirit with this spring-themed mosaic class!

Students will work with glass to create unique fine art mosaics. This class is a fun modern twist on an ancient art practice. During this workshop, you will learn the basics of creating a unique glass mosaic. This workshop is designed to be meditative and stress-reducing with students encouraged to go at their own pace.

What you’ll learn:

  • Creating a unique design

  • Adhering materials (or substrate)

  • Grouting mosaics

  • Bonus tricks and tips of the trade!

Included Materials:

  • Glass pieces

  • Woodbond All-Purpose Glue

  • Wood Frame

  • Grouting process facilitated by Dany

Mosaic-making is a *two* step process: the first-step is gluing the tessera to the substrate and the second-step is grouting. Dany, your instructor, will finish off your hand-made pieces with white groutand ship them to you at no extra cost!

NOTE: Feel free to bring some of your own materials to add to your mosaic! Some potential materials are: broken glassware, pottery, buttons, jewelry, etc. Feel to email me if you have any questions about what you can bring!
