The brilliant colors, dimensional texture and playful quality of mosaic is like no other medium. If you’ve ever wondered where to start, what tools or materials you should use for your projects, this informative and creative weekend is the answer.

Students will produce one 12” x 12” simple mosaic ready for framing, while learning about different tools, techniques and materials. Jenni will discuss and demonstrate how to use a variety of cutting tools, different types of glass, tile, and other mosaic material, what types of surfaces are best for which types of use, how to select and use different adhesives, and how to successfully complete a project with grouting and sealing.

This is a great workshop for beginners, or as preparation for larger, more complex projects you may be planning. Skills and knowledge that students take away from this class may be used for mosaic sculpture, stepping stones, pique assiette, and many other projects.

All tools and materials will be provided in class. All you need to bring is your imagination!

No experience necessary! Class size is limited to 15 so register early!
