Mosaics for the Absolute Beginner
From June 6 to July 17
Welcome to the world of mosaics, the Laura way! This approximately 3 hour introductory class will introduce beginners to the basics of mosaic creating: the astonishing array of materials and adhesives, design and composition, and the cutting and laying of tile.Supplies such as glass tile, ceramic tile, sheet glass, and china are available from vendors on the supply list, which will be included with paid class. No prior art experience is necessary, just an openness to numerous possibilities that you can create with mosaic art. This will be a fun and relaxing experience! This class does not include grouting techniques, but does include instructions for two 4x4” mosaic blocks. Patterns will also be included. I look forward to meeting you!
This informative class will cover all the basic information students will need to finish a 10 x 10 inch mirror project. This 2 to 3 hour class will include patterns to follow and is intended for a more seasoned beginner who wants to learn more on the process of creating a mosaic piece; cutting, adhesion, tile layout, and grouting. Students will be introduced to materials such as glass tile, art glass, china, ceramic tile, and more. Students are encouraged to experiment with color and texture to discover the possibilities of mosaic. A supply list will be included at signup with a resource for vendors. Grouting techniques will be included. Let’s get ready to have fun!
