Stained Glass & Mosaic Arts

Showing and Selling Your Art: How to Get Started!

 

As an artist, the jewelry, painting, or art you create is beautiful, and you’re selling to family and friends. You are ready to sell to a larger audience, but you are not sure where to start. Whether you’re thinking about Open Studios, our local Art and Wine Festivals, or perhaps expanding beyond our local region and going on the road, this workshop will help you prepare, apply and ultimately have great success showing your jewelry, ceramics, paintings, or any form of art at fairs, festivals and open studio events. 

We will cover the artist application process, the importance of excellent photography, basic concepts for booth design and layout, display ideas, packing lists, taking payments, and defining your scope. We’ll have plenty of time for questions and answers, and an opportunity to discuss what your next steps will be!

Painting with Colored Glass Powder

 

Did you ever layer sand in bottles when you were young? Now you can take that to a whole new level by using colored glass powders which will be heated in a kiln until they are fused into a lasting piece of colorful, layered art. Your unique glass can be hung as a beautiful, colorful suncatcher, or you can use a mold to make a small, luminous glass bowl.

You will learn how to use sand painting techniques with glass powder to create designs in glass, as well as the basics of glass fusing, and kiln firing.

You may pick up your pieces one week after class to allow for firing.

Mosaic Basics

The brilliant colors, dimensional texture and playful quality of mosaic is like no other medium. If you’ve ever wondered where to start, what tools or materials you should use for your projects, this informative and creative weekend is the answer.

Students will produce one 12” x 12” simple mosaic ready for framing, while learning about different tools, techniques and materials. Jenni will discuss and demonstrate how to use a variety of cutting tools, different types of glass, tile, and other mosaic material, what types of surfaces are best for which types of use, how to select and use different adhesives, and how to successfully complete a project with grouting and sealing.

This is a great workshop for beginners, or as preparation for larger, more complex projects you may be planning. Skills and knowledge that students take away from this class may be used for mosaic sculpture, stepping stones, pique assiette, and many other projects.

All tools and materials will be provided in class. All you need to bring is your imagination!

No experience necessary! Class size is limited to 15 so register early!
