Primrose Mosaics: Beginners/ Intermediate Glass Mosaic Worskshop

Hanging Garden Pendant & Flying Bug         Swindon, Wiltshire

If you are new to mosaics and glass cutting…no worries! This workshop is ideal for you. 

In the morning, I will be teaching you all the techniques you need to get started using glass to mosaic with. Once you have practised the basics, you will create your own unique design and hand craft yourself a beautiful hanging garden pendant (25cm x 5cm), using coloured glass and other tesserae of your choice, adhered to a clear perspex base.

In the afternoon, we will progress onto developing your skills to plan and execute a more challenging project. You will be given a choice of perspex bases: a butterfly, bee or dragonfly, which will come ready cut and drilled. We will be looking at design processes and practise cutting more challenging shapes. 

On day 2, you will be taught to grout your projects. Everything you make on this workshop will be weather resistant, so can be hung outside to brighten your garden all year round. 

Cost includes all tuition, use of tools and materials.

Please bring your own lunch.
