About

Come and try your hand at making a mosaic wall plaque. Working with a pre-made form you will learn to trace the patterns onto glass, before learning to cut and refine the pieces with a grinder. You will also use glass tiles to create accents and learn how to use mosaic cutters to shape them. Participants will then use the direct method to create a mosaic. Once dried participants will grout and then finally learn to clean their mosaics ready to take home. It will need to be stored inside for 1-2 weeks while the grout cures, then it can be displayed outside. The class will run in two sessions to allow for drying time between processes; Session 1: 10:30am- 3:30pm Saturday Session 2: 10:30am - 12.30 or until project is finished on Sunday Lunch will be provided on the first day using all local organic produce. You will also be provided with a divine treat on the second day and tea and coffee facilities are available throughout the course. It is anticipated that participants will be completed in time to check out one of the great local cafes for a late lunch on Sunday. Entry Cost All tickets $200 - Bring a Friend and save!
