Learn how to create glittering art by mixing collage with mosaic techniques using "Tempered Glass", also known as safety glass and crash glass. Tempered glass may be used to create beautiful art as well as architectural installations. Instruction will be given for both interior installations and exterior installations to develop a jewel-like surface. Lots of one-to-one time is offered along with group discussions.
You will begin a mosaic pieces using an overlaying technique with metallic papers, tissue, foils, glitter, Mylar and more. Each student is encouraged to bring a variety of small paper images, photos or text to include in their mosaic. This is the perfect medium to permanently incorporate printed imagery and have your treasures underneath revealed through the glass.
Works will not be grouted during workshop, a demonstration will be given and grouting can be completed after the adhesive is dry, in about a week. No prior mosaic or art knowledge required. The cost of this 4 hour workshop is $168 and includes all materials.
