Primrose Mosaics: Beginners Glass Mosaic Workshop

Hanging Garden Pendant or Sunburst Circle         Swindon, Wiltshire

Saturday 10th August 9:30am- 12noon / Sunday 11th August 9:30am -11:30am

 

If you are new to mosaics and glass cutting…no worries! This beginners' course 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 create your own unique design and hand craft yourself a beautiful hanging  pendant (25cm x 5cm) or sunburst circle (15cm), using coloured glass and other tesserae of your choice, adhered to a clear perspex base. It will be weather resistant, so can be hung outside to brighten your garden all year round or also looks great hung inside at a window. 

Ideal to give as a gift - I will email you a voucher to print with a unique code. 

 

Day 1 Tutorial- You will learn:

  • How to cut, nip, shape and grind glass safely, using different tools for different effects
  • About the different types of glass and how they react with light
  • Which weather resistant materials are suitable for outside use
  • How to lay tesserae (mosaic pieces)
  • How to glue the tesserae to the substrate to avoid grout bleed

Day 2 Tutorial  – You will learn

  • How to mix and apply grout and clean your piece (alternatively, you can take the grout and instruction sheet home for a DIY approach)
  • How to hang your piece

 

Cost includes all tuition, use of tools and materials.

Class Size: Max 6 people

I can promise a friendly and relaxed atmosphere- the perfect opportunity to chill out doing something for yourself for a change! Whether you feel creatively confident with your own ideas or need support and inspiration, I keep the groups small so that I can offer individual 1:1 help when you need it.
It does come with a warning.... and that is mosaic making can be highly addictive, with many students coming back for more sessions!
