Class limited to 12 participants.
We begin with a hand-crafted, wood design built for your lady. Or if a Lady in Hat is not your cup of tea, you can choose to make a Big Beautiful Bird using the same techniques. Just like the Ladies, the bird is a custom made wood form with the hanging hardware already installed. You can decorate with your doodads however you want your bird to fly.
Debra will teach you how to cut glass and china, how to prepare your materials for mounting and how to choose from a variety of adhesives. Prior to the workshop, Debra will have a phone call with you to help outline your plan, including color palette, materials and a template for your lady’s face (if needed). She will also provide you with measurements, should you wish to prepare some tesserae for trimming beforehand.
