About the Class

The First Saturday:

You’ll 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. You will have approximately 20 different nature themed templates to choose from, which you can use as inspiration for your mosaic. Please do not bring your own design to this class. 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.

By 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 8" x 10", 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.

Times: Day one, 10 AM -5 PM

Day two, 10 AM-1 PM

*Due to the materials used in this class, no one under the age of 16 can participate. The studio is on the 2nd floor, with no elevator. If you have a hard time with stairs, please contact me before signing up.

You'll receive a confirmation email from me within 48 hours of signing up. Your confirmation will have the studio address, hotel recommendations, my email address & phone number, and driving directions.

In this fun workshop, you'll get your creativity on &  will learn to make your own Mosaic window art!  After your two days of time in the glass studio, you'll be all set to continue on with your new-found love of all things mosaic! This is a no-stress, fun, creative class... previous mosaic experience is wonderful, but in no way necessary!

About the Area

 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!

The following is just a small sampling of things to do in Cape Elizabeth. Please let me know if you’re looking for more advice or have any questions about the area. There are 6 fabulous beaches all within a 20 minute drive from the studio, including the 5-mile long Old Orchard Beach.

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! PicMonkey Collage.jpgC10.jpg

Cape Elizabeth is also home to one of the most photographed Lighthouses in the world, Portland Headlight. There is a small shop at Portland Headlight, and an incredible cliff walk, which takes about 30 minutes to walk, if you can avoid sitting & gazing at the water & islands for long periods of time. Portland Headlight is a 10 minute drive from the Studio.

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!
