Mosaics 1A-Beginners PLUS (JULY 14 and 21, 2023)
Friday mornings, JULY 14 and 21 (8am-11am)
This class is a pumped up version of "Intro to Mosaic Art." It is for true beginners OR those who consider themselves 'newbies' but want more practice (or who just want to hang out with the cool people).
In this class, you create a small personalized wall-hanging mosaic using the direct method of mosaics, using a pattern to apply the art glass with Weldbond adhesive. True beginners will use a pattern provided by me; more advanced beginners will use modified patterns (also provided by me) or sketch their own.
You learn to:
- Use correct mosaic terminology and tools
- Apply 2D tesserae using a pattern and Weldbond adhesive
- Use glass cutting and shaping tools
- Grout and finish your mosaic
This class is primarily for beginners or for any newbie to mosaics that wants more practice with stained glass mosaics. Registration fee includes instruction, use of tools, a substrate, art glass, and adhesives. The instructor will send a detailed email the week before class. This class is about learning techniques, NOT creating a Rembrandt!
STUDENTS BRING: You will receive a list of items provided and potential items you can bring from home. However, remember this class is about using art glass, NOT other materials.
Two sessions; total class time 5+ hours.
LIMITED to 6 participants. Masks are recommended. Minimum age 18.
Classes taught at Blue Raven Art School (720 E Prince Rd).
Class and workshop registration fees are non-refundable. If you miss a class, you can take another of the same value within 3 months of the original one or give it to someone else. However, you need to send me an email to make these changes.
