A053W17 Gorgeous Glass Mosaic, Saturday, September 16, 1 - 3:30 p.m.
Instructor: Diane Petron
Skill Level: ALL
In these multigenerational workshops, learn the basics of glass fusing and then apply your newfound glass skills in the mosaic or ornament workshop. The mosaic class is a grout-free technique, since we are fusing glass in the kiln. Take one or more workshops! Completed projects will be ready for pickup in 2 to 3 weeks after being fired in a kiln by the instructor.

Mosaics: You can create a mosaic glass plate, tile, or wall hanging without the messy grout! Appropriate for beginners or experienced fusers, this class will focus primarily on color, layout, and design. You may cut your own glass shapes (beginners will be taught the basics) or use pieces already cut to create a pleasing design. The firing process will give your pieces the look of stained glass. All materials will be provided.
