Mosaic Garden Art Workshop
Think you would like to try stained glass crafting or mosaic?
This class is a great introduction to both! You will learn glass cutting,grinding and glass handling techniques using my ample bins of coloured scrap to avoid the pressure of cutting large expensive sheets of glass. All techniques you need to make stained glass pieces but a little more relaxed format as the glass pieces are used in mosaic work with less precision required.
Add a little art to your garden! Make a unique feature that will add a pop of colour and interest. This 30 cm mosaic piece is mounted on a stake. The same shape can be made into a hanging piece if you don't have a garden to put it it.
You will design your piece, cut and adhere the glass to a sturdy weather proof backing material which is precut and drilled and grout it so it can go outside.
Date for September to be announced or several people can book a day event together.
You will need to come an additional time to grout once your glass adhesive has cured. It will take approx 1.5 hrs to grout and clean and is arranged with the instructor for a convenient time. Limited spots. Must wear close toed shoes.
Workshop includes all materials including glass, use of studio tools and mounting stake with foot push. $90 plus gst
