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. Then, it's moving on to the creation of your piece! *Please note: If you can not come for the 2nd class, you will be sent home with clear directions on Day 1, along with the materials you need, to grout your piece on your own. There will not be a discount for not coming to the 2nd class, as I have only charged for materials & supplies for the second day.

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. (There will be small kits available for you to purchase if you should like to continue on with your new found love of mosaics at home, at an additional charge.) 

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 Saturday.

Your window will be 14" x 23", 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.

It’s hard to say how long Day 1 of the workshop will run. A reasonable expectation would be that you will be in the studio from 10AM- 4PM. However, we all know that some people work slower than others. You’ll be welcome to stay in the studio and work until 6:00 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.

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!
The class is limited to just 8 students, so if you have any questions, contact me right away.

On the Second Day*

Today you'll be getting dirty, and grouting your beautiful mosaic window. I’ll show you how to mix your grout, the types of grout to choose from, and techniques for easy grouting & cleaning. You'll also learn about sealing your finished piece. Grouting is the step that really brings your piece to life!

For this class, there will be times that you can not work on your window while you’re waiting for the grout to set. During this time, you’ll have the option of working on an additional small project: mosaic jewelry making. This extra “mini-class” will have you walking away with either a pair of mosaic earrings, a bracelet, or a pendant necklace. The cost of this mini-class is $35, and includes all of your supplies. You can also take a 5 minute stroll to one of our two beaches to look for sea glass, or get yourself a treat at the cafe next door & relax under one of the umbrellas. No need to decide right now... just know that the choice will be yours! Payment for the mini-class can be either check or cash on the day of the workshop.


* If you can not come for the 2nd class, you will be sent home with clear directions on Day 1, along with the materials you need, to grout your piece on your own. There will not be a discount for not coming to the 2nd class, as I have only charged for materials & supplies for the second day.
