We know that some of you do not have enough time to commit to a 4-week class, so we are adding something new -- a 1-session, 3-hour “Teaser” Mosaic Class. You will learn the basics of making an interior mosaic. We will supply the materials and one 6 x 9 inch picture frame. We will teach you the basics of cutting or breaking tile or glass (your preference) and demonstrate grouting. You’ll go home with a small bag of grout so you can grout your frame after the glue dries.


Dates: 3 Saturdays September 6, 13 and 20th
11:00 - 2:00
Cost: $145 - Includes a 4-Week Studio Pass
Level: Intermediate (Must have mosaic experience)
*Please note: this class cost only includes instruction, use of tools, and a studio pass. Each student will need to purchase his or her own tiles & grout.

This class is designed for those that have already taken a basic mosaic class and would like to improve their mosaic techniques and skills. Come to class with a completed mosaic project. The instructors will give you feedback on your mosaic piece and help you define areas for improvement. You will create a project of your choice working intensively on your specific goals. This class is all hands on with one-on-one teaching.
We will focus on design, flow, movement, color and anything else you have questions about.
