On the road, Susan combines her beginning and intermediate level workshops on using salvaged tempered and transparent glass in mosaic.

Some mosaic experience is helpful, but not necessary.

~~~~Tempered, Transparent, Textured Glasses:

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, tools, supplies and where to get them, substrates, adhesives, colorants, and various media including decorative papers, photos, gift wrap, etc..Cutting glass (hand tools and Ringsaw), alcohol inks, and several other colorants, and mixing in other mosaic materials such as polymer clay tiles, ceramic, mirror, and stained glass.

You will do 3 small pieces (including a jewelry piece) 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 and metallic effects to your grout!

You'll be delighted with this simple technique and the art you create in just one weekend!
