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 perfect course for you. Also suitable for those who have had previous experience cutting glass and mosaicing elsewhere or are creativel confident.
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.
Day 1 Tutorial- You will learn:
- To explore ways to plan and execute a more complex project: an abstract or figurative theme of your choice. (I will have plenty of ideas, examples and plans which you can use or adapt, or you can bring your own idea which I can help you execute.)
- Tips and techniques for cutting more challenging glass shapes.
- How to lay and glue your tesserae to avoid grout bleed
- How to edge your mosaic for a professional finish.
- To execute your design, with individual help and advice as needed.
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 attach your teardrop to a predrilled metal pole.
