Piecing it Together- Mosaics Projects

October 6th - November 10th
John Drury |

This course is the perfect offering for makers comfortable with two-dimensions and interested in expanding their creative vocabulary; everyone! Over six sessions we will fully explore the history and method of this ancient technique. Students will learn the do’s-and-don’ts of the process, including an introduction to the proper tools and their use, how to cut glass, and required materials. The class will dive right into a small first work to build a clear understanding of the procedure. A larger next mosaic will then be approached with a full understanding of the potential of this wonderful method of creativity. Hands-on work will be complemented by presentations exploring examples of mosaics works, both contemporary and ancient (traditional, and otherwise). Students will look outside of the classroom to personal experience, and to their own physical environments for a unique experience, reflective of this age-old technique. Your dog, your cat … your favorite food, or team – pick any subject that speaks to you!

No experience with glass is necessary.
