Intro to Mosaic Materials

Four consecutive Wednesday evenings in June, 2018
(by the end of class, you will have made an 8x8" mandala/concentric circle piece)

Sacramento Fine Arts Center, Carmichael, CA (class size limit: 13)

June 6, 13, 20, and 27: 5:30-9pm

Each week, Susan will introduce a new material and teach you how to cut, shape, and glue it as you build a small mandala (basically a circular piece, with concentric circles).

No previous experience necessary!

More info here

Class #1: polymer clay
Class #2: Smalti, beads, millefiore, gems
Class #3: Ceramic and porcelain tile
Class #4: stained and tempered glass, mirror

Each class will start with a short slide show of inspiring work with each material, a short lecture and demo, and then the second half of the class will allow for you to make your piece.

Some of the topics: tools, supplies and where to get them, substrates, adhesives, etc.

Note about grout: since this piece is for hanging indoors, there is no need for grout.

Cost: $185. + 45. materials fee.


Please email Susan if you have any questions or to make your reservation. (susan@scmosaics.com)
