STAINED GLASS MIRROR AND GLASS MOSAICS - 2 days
During the workshop I will show you how to cut stained glass using both traditional cutters and mosaic nippers producing different effects for different projects and how to lay the 'tessera' to build simple or complicated designs which can then be placed on your 'float' glass to create beautiful, bright home or garden mosaics.
The coloured glass will be adhered to a mirror float producing stunning colour quality and, due to its reflective surface, not only keeping it bright but subtly changing the hues according to the ambient light.
I will teach you how to source your materials, both new and recycled, and make your work waterproof so suitable for year long garden display, no matter the weather. We will also cover how to avoid the pitfalls that will cause problems later on. This is an unusual style of mosaic which you can apply to a selection of surfaces to create lamps, vases, decanters, tiles, balls, water features, panels, windows and mirrors so your work will not only be unique, but hopefully, the envy of all your friends.
What's included in the price?
The workshop studio is located in Cadeleigh Village Hall in the Mid Devon countryside approximately 7 miles from Tiverton. I provide a selection of teas, coffees and biscuits throughout the day and there is the local Cadeleigh Arms Public House just around the corner or you are welcome to bring some lunch, a full kitchen available. All the tools and materials you will need to complete the course are provided and what you make is yours to take home at the end of the day.
