Come and enjoy a day of hands-on exploration of mosaics! The class will begin with an introduction to the direct method of making a mosaic and a brief presentation on elements of design in mosaic art. Techniques and safe practices when cutting glass will be explained and demonstrated. Each student will make and should be able to finish a 4" x 4" mosaic of their own design. A wide variety of materials will be available for student use, including vitreous glass, ceramic and mirrored tile, stained glass, millefiori and ceramic dishware. Students are also encouraged to bring their own materials such as old plates, pottery, jewelry or other small objects which might be meaningful to them, to incorporate into their design. While all materials required to complete the project will be provided, hand nippers will be available for purchase by students who wish to have their own.
