Tempered Glass Mosaic Collage
This course will be held in Oakton, VA.
In this workshop you will create a beautiful mosaic tempered glass artworks incorporating colorful papers, photographs, text, stamps and more. Tempered glass, also known as Crash Glass, is a versatile material that when used as an overlay makes for exciting, shimmery modern mosaic art works. We also use stained glass and other glass products for unique, sophisticated compositions filled with unexpected visual interest.
We begin by creating an elaborate paper collage with photographs, stickers, tissue papers, stamps, glitter, wrapping paper – just about anything that allows for a flat surface. We then apply the tempered and stained glass overlay.
Grouting is optional. We will not grout in the workshop, however students will be sent home with grout to do on own. Students encouraged to bring papers, photos and personal imagery for inclusion in their final project.
A supply fee of $45 payable to instructor the at class. Supply fee covers mosaic materials students will need to complete at least 2 small projects. Students are welcome to bring supplemental materials, but not required. Tool loan provided, although students urged to purchase their own glass cutting tools if they wish to work on projects at home.
