If you are a group of three or more people, you can set up your own private mosaic class! With a private class, we can work together to schedule a time that works for you and your friends. Classes I offer privately are mosaic window classes (glass on glass), and mosaic mirror class (direct method mosaicing). Classes can be tailored to your skill level... and that means you total mosaic newbies as well! :) Contact me to find out more about private classes.

The First Saturday:
start your workshop by learning the basics of mosaics. The morning of
Day 1, instruction will cover design techniques,the basics of glass
cutting & how to stay safe doing it, adhesives, materials, tools,
different types of glass, and a short history of mosaics. Then, it's
moving on to the creation of your piece!
You’ll be able to choose from any of the glass in the studio to use in your mosaic. All materials and supplies will be provided, and are included in the class fee.
the end of the first day, your glass will be on your mosaic window. At
the end of of Day 1, you’ll have to leave your baby, and let the
adhesives set until the following day.
Your mosaic will be 10" x 12", in a wood frame (which you can paint if you wish), and will be ready to hang when you leave the 2nd day of the workshop.

Cape Elizabeth Maine is a wonderful location! Our little coastal town is just a 10 minute drive from the city of Portland, with all of its galleries, restaurants, and amazing shopping!
My studio is a 5 minute walk to two lovely beaches: One of them a cove, and the other a mile-long State Park Beach called Crescent Beach. Both are very nice swimming spots during the summer, and fun places to find beach glass.
Hop in your car, and a mile away is the Lobster Shack, where you can get fresh caught lobsters, fried clams, or my favorite: fried scallops, just to name a few. Not only is the food a treat, but you’ll eat with one of the best views around!
While working at the studio, there are spots to eat within walking distance as well. Right at the end of the yard is a great little cafe that serves all your favorite coffee drinks, and grilled paninis. There are two additional restaurants within a 5 minute stroll from the studio.
Before you leave town, you can stop at our local “pick your own flowers” farm. $5 for a bouquet, all on the honor system. It’s a lovely way to end any day!
