This workshop will be taught by Maverick Mosaics owner Bonnie Fitzgerald and held at ANYTHING IN STAINED GLASS, 5104 Pegasus Ct., Frederick, MD 21704
Exploring Mosaics in Glass is a comprehensive workshop offering a strong foundation for constructing decorative art mosaics. Students will be introduced to several types of glass materials applicable to mosaics. On Friday we begin with a lecture and picture presentation about contemporary glass mosaics and the role of classical mosaic techniques when working in glass. Each student will be guided through the design process to create a 10” x 10” home décor piece for interior display.
Students are welcome to bring their own designs, however instructor will have optional patterns available for those who feel more comfortable creating from an existing design. We spend a portion of Friday analyzing our design, deciding how we wish to “lay” our tesserae, our “tiles”. Once we know how we want our tesserae cut we begin preparing our materials.
Saturday is a full working studio day filled with fun and creativity. Sunday will be spent on grouting and finishing techniques, friendly critique and Q & A.
Included in workshop fee will be your mosaic substrate measuring 10” x 10”, adhesive, grout and supplemental specialty materials including vitreous tiles, art glass tiles, millefiori, fused glass and glass gems.
Students are responsible for providing their own stained glass, glass cutting tools and mosaic wheel nipper (available from ATISG).
This workshop is suited for anyone new to mosaics or folks wishing to take their work to a new level. All skill levels welcome, no experience necessary. Students can expect a great deal of personal instruction and guidance and no question will go unanswered!
