2-day Beginning Tempered Glass Technique
My home in Carmichael (class size limit: 8)
May 20 (11-6) and 21 (11-3)
Susan will teach the basics of how to use tempered glass in mosaic. This is NOT a traditional mosaic class wherein traditional tessera such as tile, marble, stained glass, seashells, etc. are used. This workshop focuses only on the technique of using transparent, salvaged tempered glass in mosaic. No previous experience necessary!
Some of the topics: Review of some of the leading tempered glass artists, the possibilities, tools, supplies and where to get them, substrates, adhesives, colorants, and various media including decorative papers, photos, gift wrap, etc..
You will do 3 small pieces that explore the wide range of substrates suitable to tempered glass mosaic technique (wood, glass, etc.). You can bring your own decorative papers, photos, or other flat (paper-thin) mementos if you'd like.
On the second day, we will grout our pieces. Susan will teach various ways to add multi-color effects to your grout!
You'll be delighted with this simple technique and the art you create in just one weekend!
First class: prepping, decorating, glassing.
Second class: grouting and sealing.
Option: if you'd rather continue glassing on Sunday (rather than grout), you're welcome to attend a grout session.
Cost: $150. + 25. materials fee.
Please email/call Susan if you have any questions or to make your reservation. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
It's always lots of fun!
