Join us for this 4-hour long workshop, exploring the ancient art of mosaics!
The art of Mosaics has been amazing man-kind since the beginning of civilization. Often complex in design and in color, the art of mosaics brings a new consideration to decoration. It’s amazing to think the earliest appearance of Mosaic dates back to ancient Mesopotamia!
Mosaics are collections of small pieces of glass, stone, or other nature-based materials. These bits, known as tessera are then arranged into patterns, and grouted.
I love this class, because unlike fusing, you have the opportunity to bring bits of your own history to incorporate into your piece.
You will receive the 10x10 mirror, like the one pictured. Then, you will have the ability to design and decorate to your liking. You will learn advanced cutting techniques, including straight lines, curved lines, and circles. Learned mosaic techniques include designing, tile cutting and shaping, gluing, and grouting.
Great for beginners!
