This class is geared to adults - children 12 years and older are welcome if they are comfortable staying focused for 2 to 3 hours. Once you try it you will be hooked!! In this class you will make a 4 1/2" by 4 1/2" tile/trivet and learn the basics of cutting, color, grouting, and design techniques as well as a brief history of mosaics. Just come to class with an open mind ready to create, design your own or use one of our suggested designs!

Mosaic Art Design
Learn the ancient art of mosaics!! In this five-week session (last session you schedule to grout) you will create a beautiful 8" by 10" mosaic art panel. This is a very structured, hands-on class in which you will design your own art panel. Instruction will cover in-depth design techniques, andamento, opus, color, materials, history of mosaics, adhesives, mosaic bases, tools, and cutting techniques. This class is great for both beginners and more experienced students who would like a more in-depth exploration of this fine art!
This class is offered approximately 3 times per year. $165 includes all materials and a frame.
The first Friday of each month is reserved for making mosaic jewelry. In one evening, you can walk out wearing a new pair of earrings and a pendant. In addition to earring and pendant findings, we also carry earrings, pendants, key chains, bottle stoppers, cabinet pulls, and more. Come and try your hand at designing your own jewelry!
$40 for one piece and $70 for two!! First Friday of the month, 6:30 - 9:00 pm, refreshment included.

Mosaic Collage Using Tempered Glass
Preserve your “paper” memories under beautiful glass! In this class you will make a paper collage using items (cards, ticket stubs, pictures, ribbon, glitter, whatever you like) that are personal to you as well as materials we have gathered, to make an 8 x 10” or 8 x 8” art piece. After you cover your board with your paper design, you will cover it with clear glass and “crash” (tempered) glass, as well as other materials we have in the studio. This gives your design a beautiful shimmery and jewel like quality. This class is great for the first time mosaic artist as well as a new technique for long time mosaic artists!
Three Monday nights, TBD
Cost: $150, includes all materials and a frame for your finished piece.
