Two-day Mosaic classes for Beginners and Intermediate levels, Floral, Jeweled Mirrors, boxes, 3D Critters classes. Saturday and Sunday in my home studio in Alpharetta. The cost of the Basic weekend is $250, all supplies are included. I will teach everything you need to know about this exciting art form, and you will complete a wonderful piece of art.
An overview of the art form and various styles of mosaic
Types of substrates and their preparation
Types of tesserae
Creating a design
Do’s and Don’ts (you will learn from my mistakes!)
Beginners will have your choice of one of the two substrates I will provide:
10x10 wood mirror
8x8 wood panel
Intermediates can bring a substrate from home with my approval (to make sure it will work with mosaic) or do a mirror or panel
I will supply everything you need to complete your piece while you are here. I will also have various baubles, beads, and other goodies from my collection for sale. Please feel free to bring anything from home that you may want to add to your piece.
Supplies I will provide for your use:
Wide variety of stained glass
Wide variety of glass tiles
Lots of glass blobs in many colors
A few interesting odds and ends from my collection
Tools, adhesives, and grout
Make your very own bouquet!
You will bring:
-a frame with glass. They are readily available at any store and not expensive. Your frame size will depend somewhat on how much material you have collected to put into your arrangement.
-old jewelry parts, beads and other odds and ends that can be made into flowers and leaves. These are easy to find at Goodwill, thrift stores, Michaels, even Target. Of course, there are a lot of sources on ebay and Etsy for vintage materials and beads. Don’t be afraid to break pieces off of other things that can turn into accoutrements to your arrangement. I’ve used shower rings, forks and spoons, plates, coasters, door knobs, whatever! We can make flowers out of glass and tiles, too.
I will supply:
-glass, tiles, glue, tools, and a big grab box of things for filler
-baubles and beads for sale
-basic frames if you need one
All classes require a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 10 students, first come first served. Please call me at 404-862-2244 or email me to reserve your spot and for further details. 50% deposit is required with your reservation.
