Primrose Mosaics: Beginners Glass Mosaic Worskshop
Garden Sunburst Circle-Swindon, Wiltshire
If you are new to mosaics and glass cutting…no worries! This beginners workshop is ideal for you.
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 design and handcraft yourself a beautiful 15cm sunburst circle using coloured glass and other tesserae of your choice, adhered to a clear perspex base. You will learn how to follow a basic design idea, which you will personalise and make totally unique by choosing your own colour combinations, textures and patterns. All the materials you use will be weather resistant, so your finished suncatcher can be hung outside to brighten your garden all year round.
Cost includes all tuition, use of tools and materials.
