Primrose Mosaics: Intermediate Glass Mosaic Worskshop
Teardrop: Swindon, Wiltshire
If you have already completed my Beginners Glass Mosaic Workshop and would like to develop your skills to plan and execute a larger, more challenging project, then this is the course for you. Also suitable for those who have had previous experience cutting glass and mosaicing elsewhere.
You will be given a teardrop shaped perspex base (approx. 17cm x 40cm) which will come ready cut and drilled. We will spend the whole day planning, cutting and gluing your teardrop. We will be looking at design processes (both abstract and figurative) and there will be opportunities to practise cutting more challenging glass shapes.
On the second day, we will be grouting, cleaning and attaching your teardrop to a metal pole. All the materials you use will be weather resistant, so your finished teardrop can be placed outside to brighten your garden all year round.
Cost includes all tuition, use of tools and materials.
Please bring your own lunch.
Class Size: Max 6 people.
