Glass on Glass Mosaic
With Pam Collins
Join Pam Collins for an informative workshop of Glass on Glass Mosaics. Recently displayed at the Fiber Festival, Pam's work garnered a great deal of interest, and she is happy to offer a class at GRA for you to create your very own piece.
In this two day workshop, students will learn how to cut glass, design and create a colored glass image, and grout the works to complete a gorgeous stained glass mosaic piece. The process is time intensive; attendance for all two sessions is necessary. All glass and constructive materials will be provided.
Students are required to bring their own PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR. Safety glasses are easily acquired at your local hardware store.
This class is sure to be fun and educational!
