Glass Mosaic Animals
This workshop taught at ANYTHING IN STAINED GLASS, 5104 Pegasus Ct., Frederick, MD 21704
Create a stylized glass mosaic animal portrait. Working directly from photographs students learn to apply mosaic techniques in a portrait of an animal of their choosing.
Covered in class lecture are the principals of color, tone, perspective and cutting techniques. Special cutting and laying techniques are introduced to determine what is best suited for your animal.
This is a terrific first step to mastering the portrait in mosaic.
Students MUST submit images to instructor one week IN ADVANCE (electronically). Instructor provides prepared substrates and appropriately cropped photographs. Workshop fee includes preparation of your animal image, substrate, adhesive and grout. Included in workshop fee will be your mosaic substrate, square or rectangular (depends on your animal), adhesive and grout. Students also have access to AISG scrap bins (yummy!)
We work approximately one square foot of mosaic. Students are responsible for providing their own stained glass. AISG will loan glass cutting tools and mosaic wheel nipper, although always best to have your own tools. Recommended supplemental tool and supply list will be sent in advance.
On Friday there will be a picture presentation and demonstrations that will help you determine the best cutting “style” for your animal. We work throughout the day with lots of conversation about mosaic technique. Saturday is a full working studio day filled with fun and creativity. Sunday will be spent on grouting and finishing techniques, friendly critique and Q & A. All skill levels welcome, no experience necessary.
Students can expect a great deal of personal instruction and guidance and no question will go unanswered. The rich selection of materials available from Anything in Stained Glass will be available throughout the workshop.
