  • G228 | Glass mosaic: Open technique (March 16, 23, and 30, 2019)

    Since ancient times, mosaics have mesmerized with their dazzling colours and distinctive aesthetic. Glass mosaics transitioned from a tile mosaic application to incorporating stained glass practices that allow us to create bold pictorials and unique abstracts. This has opened the technique to all artistic styles and levels of experience.

    During this three-day workshop, participants will select a project to complete. Options include:

    • Option A | one 16-inch x 24-inch forever fun, colour-wheel mosaic mirror;
    • Option B | one 16-inch x 24-inch stained glass mosaic; and
    • Option C | one freestyle or stained glass mosaic Lazy Susan.

    Tool use, glass cutting, pattern transfer, base preparation, and grouting will be covered.

    Project base, a selection of stained glass off-cuts, adhesive, and grout included.
