Stained Glass & Mosaic Arts

Mosaic Sculpture

 

 

 

Take the texture, color, and faceted beauty of mosaic and learn to apply it to 3 dimensional shapes and forms. Whether you create a garden sculpture or an artistic piece for your home, this workshop helps you see mosaic in a whole new light!

Over the course of the weekend your instructor will guide you through the steps for creating a small sculptural object using architectural cement with re-purposed materials. Learn to transform all manner of recycled bases (Styrofoam, cardboard, water bottles, and newspaper) into simple cement forms, ready to mosaic. Then you’ll apply mosaic surface treatment selected from a wide assortment of shared mosaic supplies. Choose from ceramic tiles, glass, and other objects that help you create color and personality for your piece.

All tools and materials will be provided in class. All you need to bring is your imagination! Students will complete one ready-to-grout lightweight piece in class. No experience necessary. Class size is limited to 15 so register early!

Stained Glass Boot Camp!

Spend a whole weekend creating a unique, custom designed stained glass piece with expert guidance and support as you go! Choose from florals, mission style, and several other patterns, or create your own unique, custom design. Students will create a stained glass panel roughly 1-3 square feet. Projects can be a little larger or smaller, based on complexity.

Before class you will begin at Kiss My Glass to select or design your pattern, and choose your glass. Completing this prep work ahead of time allows you to have the pattern you have chosen, and all of your glass, ready ahead of time so you may use your entire weekend working on your project. Please note that custom designs must be approved by the instructor to be sure they can be completed in the time available during class.

Students may bring their own tools if they have them - but please mark your tools clearly with your name! You may also choose to use the tools provided in class.

Glass purchase ahead of time is required but other miscellaneous materials like lead, zinc, solder and chemicals can be purchased in class for flat discounted rate of between $40 -$60, depending on your project.
