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 sample garnered so much interest, she is thrilled to be leading a class at Great River Arts for you to create your very own piece.

In this two day workshop, Collins will teach you how to cut glass, design and create a colored glass image, and finally, the grouting process to complete a gorgeous stained glass mosaic piece. The process is time intensive; attendance for all three 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!

Saturday, February 10, 9:30am - 2:30pm
Tuesday, February 13, 6-9pm

Space is limited to eight students, so make sure you register early.
