Contemporary Glass Mosaics


About Instructor


Find inspiration in both the ancient art of mosaics and the form’s international modern-day movement as you are guided through the process of creating a contemporary glass mosaic.

Learn cutting techniques and embrace classical mosaic sensibilities, including the concept of andamento (the equivalent of the painter’s brushstroke in mosaic). Sessions focus on different aspects of mosaic fabrication techniques and feature works of well-known contemporary mosaic artists.

All skill levels are welcome. Beginners are required to purchase an instructor-designed kit ($69.95 plus applicable tax and shipping). The kits are available in four patterns. Ordering information is on the supply list, along with supplemental materials and tools. Please place orders no later than one week prior to the first class. Experienced and returning students may provide their own materials and design if they prefer.
