Learn the foundations of mosaic art using regular and tempered glass as your tesserae*. It's suggested that students bring a collection of small images, text on paper or crafted paper pieces like Washi to include in their mosaic. We will practice an overlay technique using tissue paper, glitter and more. Glass mosaics beautifully and permanently encapsulate your treasures underneath each piece of glass. No prior mosaic knowledge necessary. All levels welcome.
