Who is this workshop designed for? I've designed this course with YOU in mind!
Have you been admiring the pictures of tempered glass mosaics on the Internet? Not sure what tempered glass mosaic art is all about? Have you wanted to give this technique a try, but didn't know where to start? Are you a mosaic artist and would like to add tempered glass techniques to your skill set? Have you wanted to learn how to use No Days, a heat set adhesive? Then this is for you!
Do you need mosaic art experience? No experience necessary! This course is designed for beginners and experts alike!
This workshop is perfect for the mosaic beginner. You don't need mosaic art experience or glass cutting skills. But if you're an experienced mosaic artist, you're gonna love learning a new style and adhesive technique.
Why am I offering this workshop online? I want to inspire you to create your own mosaic art!
My in-studio workshops sell out quickly and so many of you can't make it to my studio because of schedules or distance. So, I decided to 'Share the Mosaic Joy' by offering a virtual mosaic art workshop. Log in any time, pick up where you left off and enjoy crafting in the comfort of your own home!
Why is using tempered glass in mosaic art so fun and fab? It sparkles!
The broken tempered glass pieces look like little diamonds! And the material and technique is incredibly versatile. It can be layered over a mixed media or painted base or used in "glass on glass" mosaics. Include tempered glass as an added eye-catching element in any art glass, smalti or ceramic mosaic design.
What you will love about this course:
- You will learn all of the techniques necessary to create your own sparkling tempered glass mosaic art.
- Unleash your creativity by adding a mixed media layer to your mosaic masterpiece. I'll show you how!
- We'll discuss all things tempered glass.
- Where to source it
- How it differs from other glass
- How to 'crash' it safely
- You will learn about all the adhesive options for tempered glass and why I prefer 'No Days' heat set adhesive.
- You will learn how to grout glass with the 'dry method' AND how to custom tint grouts and combine them to create your own individual mosaic art.
- By completing each step, YOU WILL SUCCEED in creating your own unique piece and I can't wait to see your final product!
- By selecting the course AND kit option, you'll save time and money. I will personally package and mail the glass sheets, gems and other materials. See the complete kit list below.
Why is this course DIFFERENT than other online mosaic art courses?
My in-person mosaic workshops are so much fun! We learn a lot just by working through the course 'material', but we also learn from each other. This course is filmed during an actual mosaic workshop. You'll see how students interpret what they're learning into their own individual mosaic design and learn from their questions, successes and YES, even their mistakes.
