The materials used will be a combination of Mexican Smalti (a thick luscious glass that is rich and vibrant in color) & picassiette (dishes, saucers, pottery, etc). Participants may also choose to incorporate additional materials such as stone, marble, and found objects.

I’ve created a custom metal butterfly cutout for this class, so you can create an exterior mosaic that lives forever in your garden. This four hours workshop flutters by fast. I’ve designed this class to expose the students to a variety of glass, as well as working in three dimensions. We will cover the basic mosaic techniques, tools, and jargon. Start your transformation into a mosaic artist in a fun and social way. All material included. In case the project is not completed in class. We will cover grouting, grout, and rubber gloves will go home with you.
