The unique properties of tempered glass make it an exciting addition to all mosaic projects. In this two-day workshop students will learn through demonstration and written materials how to work with tempered glass; discover how it differs from stained glass, fusing glass, marbles or mirror.
Tempered glass is the perfect medium for permanently incorporating printed imagery such as photos, drawings, labels and written words into mosaics. Small images work best.
Day one will introduce students to the techniques for using tempered glass in mosaics, designing and glazing their projects. Grouting, edging and sealing projects will be covered on day two.
Bring a lunch and any small paper images to include. Returning students may bring their own object (24 square inches or less) to mosaic.
Students will design and produce up to four coasters, a small mirror frame and an ornamental garden rock.
Please bring an apron or work shirt to class.
