Animals in Glass Mosaic


About Instructor

This workshop held at Anything in Stained Glass, Frederick, MD. Currently sold out and wait listing. Please call ATISG to be wait listed, we are quite a way out from workshop date and good change there will be a few openings. tel: 301/378-2218. ATISG handles all sign ups for this workshop including wait list.

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. A separate $35 supply fee payable to the Instructor the first day of the workshop includes preparation of your animal image, properly scaled to size, other resource images, properly prepared substrate and grout. We work approximately one square foot of mosaic.

Included in your overall workshop fee are use of grinders and other hand tools as needed (loan only during workshop hours). Also access to ATISG scrap glass, yummy!

Students are responsible for providing their own stained glass and WeldBond glue (available at ATISG). Students asked to bring good quality glass cutting tools and mosaic wheel nipper (if you own). Know it is always best to have your own tools. Strongly recommended is a LePonitt wheeled nipper, glass scorer and running plier.

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.
