This 2-day workshop will teach you how to turn everyday items (in this case bottles) into mosaic works of art. Using stained glass, students will create a stained-glass affect. Add some LED lights and voila! Supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your own wine bottle, pickle jar or vase.
Student will be introduced to basic terminology, safety and tools for making a mosaic while creating a special artwork that can be created using everyday items in your home. On Day 1, students will be guided through the step by step process to create a one of a kind mosaic. Day 2 will be shorter as you finish by grouting and cleaning your piece. This two-day workshop is a level II class, some prior experience is needed.
Lunch will NOT be provided for this workshop, but we encourage people to brown bag a light lunch to eat during a short break.
