PRE-REGISTRATION required at SAAG Registration Calendar
(You MUST pre-register to attend. No walk-ins or pay-at-the-door.)
Create a unique, personalized holiday ornament while learning the basics of the “tapestry method” of mosaics. You will be using your own broken jewelry, memorabilia, and other ‘bling’ (beads, jewelry, gems, polished stones or minerals, chains, and any metal or enameled items, but no plastics). The instructor supplies the materials needed to construct the mosaic, use of tools, and one ornament per person. Additional ornaments $5 each. This class is for adults only (18 and over).
Minimum 8 participants. Limited to 16 participants. Minimum age 18.
Since moving to Tucson in 1985, Andrea has explored artistic genres such as stained and fused glass art. When she moved to Wash, DC in 2010, she discovered her passion for mosaics in classes taught by accomplished mosaicists. She learned many techniques but discovered she most enjoyed creating mosaics from re-purposed materials. She returned to Tucson in 2016 and continues to follow her passion for creating upcycled mosaics, teaching classes, and promoting the sustainability aspect of her art.
All class and workshop registration fees are non-refundable. Registration fee includes all materials EXCEPT the 'bling' (described above) that must be provided by students. Look closely at the ornament images to get ideas for bling. Aprons recommended.
REMEMBER: Registration is at SAAG Registration Calendar, NOT on this website.
