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!
This class will be offered late spring, 2024
