The art of mosaic dates back thousands of years, and many of the techniques have stood the test of time. Join us for Introduction to Glass Mosaics and learn about design, color, glass cutting techniques for mosaic, applying your design to your base, and grouting. In this three hour class, you will choose from six shapes of trivets, then decide on a design. Your instructor will show you how to cut and shape the pieces, prepare and glue your glass, and then provide a demonstration on grouting. All materials are included in the class fee, including use of all tools, one trivet and base, glue, grout kit, and glass. You’ll take home your glued piece, ready for grouting after 24 hours, and a grout kit with detailed instructions. Once grouted, you can use your trivet as a display piece or a traditional kitchen trivet. (Alternatively, if you decide after the grouting demo that you’d rather leave it for us to grout, there is an additional $10 fee, payable at the end of class.) We know you’re going to love your beautiful glass mosaic creation!
