Beginning & Advanced Mosaic Classes

 

mothFind yourself oddly attracted to BLING-BLING? Ever felt like smashing things? Ready to go beyond paper? If so, this is the workshop for you. At the end of the month you will be well experienced and have a vast knowledge of the mosaic world and the techniques you need to make just about anything covered in brightly colored glass and tile. Our project will be an insect (butterfly, dragonfly, firefly, moth, etc.) of your design or choosing. I wIll teach you the best way to create gorgeous patterns and compositions using fabulous colored opaque glass. We will learn about the best products to create long lasting and beautiful mosaics both indoors and out. You will fall in love with the intensity of the medium and take great pride in creating something so permanent. I promise you will find the class to be extremely cathartic and satisfying.

Garden-Spheres

Mosaic Spheres Workshop

 

2KatStudios

 

This two-day class is a great introduction to the world of exterior-grade mosaic work. Katherine pre-makes the lightweight garden spheres which will be your substrate on this weekend adventure. Using the best adhesives, she  will teach a no-mess application method that takes the headache out of thin-set use. You will learn how to create swirls, how to transition colors, and no-fail methods of a long-lasting art piece that will be the jewel of your garden.

By Sunday afternoon we will be ready to learn grouting techniques, and we will be shown how to make our own garden spheres from scratch. Our spheres will be 10″ which is a good size to complete in 2 days. Larger spheres (15″)  are available for an additional $50. 

Come learn skills that will serve you on many future mosaic projects.
All materials and supplies will be provided for this wonderful weekend of creativity!

Class will run from 9:30-4:30 on Saturday and Sunday, and you will take home a beautiful glass mosaic garden sphere. Your cost is only $250 for the weekend, including all tools and supplies.

After one day students will be confident in the skills of mosaic art such as nipping, adhesives, placement, grouting and everything needed to complete a beautiful piece for your home.

 

In this class the theme is "The Day of the Dead" so I will have several shapes to choose from. Of course there will be some simple mirrors as well.

 

I provide a kaleidoscope of colored glass and we learn how to follow line and space to fill our piece to perfection. Class fee is $125 and includes everything you need for an amazing day of creativity.

mosaic bench

Bench/Stepping Stone


This is its own form of garden art. We learn the indirect method of laying
out our design inside a bench mold (we have 5 bench shapes to choose
from). Our canvas is large, up to 48" so it takes a while to design and
lay out our pieces. Most of this will be done on day one and part of day
two. Our final few hours will be spent pouring up 150lb of concrete with
rebar over the top of our precious design. 3 days later we will remove our
bench from the mold to reveal a beautiful inlaid glass design ready to set
in your yard. This piece is durable and will be a true jewel in your
garden. The class is $250 (includes all materials). Don¹t be intimidated.
This class is perfect for beginners as well as advanced. Legs are not
included in the class but I can tell you some great solutions for perching
your new art piece.


Stepping stone: For those that want a smaller gem in their garden fell free to come join us for either Saturday or Sunday and make a single stepping stone for $105. Still using the same technique as the bench but finished in a day.

In this class we strengthen both sides through a series of exercises designed to give the students confidence and strong skills in their ability to draw what they see as well as express themselves creatively. This is a serious drawing class and will be limited to 10 students. Bring your own journal or sketch pad. We will also be practicing watercolor techniques. Class starts at 10 and goes to 4.

Daily Meditation through art journaling has become an extremely important part of my life and this 2-day class will help you begin the journey of telling your story through Right-brain drawing, collage, zentangling and more, more, more. Day one will be construction. You learn how to tear high-quality paper into signatures that are sewn together to create your custom journal. Then we begin to sharpen our observation muscles with drawing exercises. We learn the basics of watercolor and play with transfers, collage and cornucopia of creative media.
