Birds of a feather may flock together, but a bird with this home will never roam!

MOSAICS 101 (the basics) ($80)
This class is just what it sounds like... a beginner’s class. Or a refresher class. It is a hands-on class that provides a basic understanding and the skills for creating beautiful mosaics for your home. In this class you will make a mosaic mirror, a cross, or a heart (all projects are approx. 10”-12”). We will go over the basic tools and techniques needed to create a mosaic, as well as many tips I’ve learned along the way. Learning how to cut and nip the glass will be part of the instructions. No art or mosaic experience is required!

Indirect (or Reverse) Method on a Lazy Susan ($125)
Now that you've conquered the Direct Method (Mosaics 101 class) for laying a mosaic, come challenge yourself with the Indirect Method! Using the Indirect Method, the mosaic is created backwards, like a mirror and then transferred onto the substrate. We will discuss the pros and cons of each method, including which method is appropriate for various projects. Basic mosaic experience is required (see our Mosaics 101 class for the basics).
