Mosaic Magic – starting with mosaics
Sunday March 17th 10.00 til 2.30 pm
8 places available – cost $65 – equipment and glass provided
Come and learn the basics of this art form. What will you create? A stepping stone? Some wall art?
Mosaics also provide a chance to recycle materials and repurpose broken glass, ceramic tiles, porcelain or 3D ornaments therefore reducing some waste and landfill.
The day will include:
- Safety and handling glass, broken tiles and ceramics
- Techniques in cutting and using tools associated with mosaic work
- Understanding glues and sealants and their safety
- Using a grinder to shape pieces.
What to bring:
- Comfortable clear safety glasses
- Old cloths or paper towels
- Drop sheet to cover floor of work space (cloth or plastic) and tape to stick down (avoids trips)
- A few paddle pop sticks or satay sticks for handling glue
- A small packet if alcohol based wipes
- Your lunch
- Glass cutting tool (available at hardware stores and Amazon) – some spares available at the workshop (groups will be put in pairs and can share tools)
- Black marking pen (not water soluble)
- A simple design to copy or sketch – with 3-4 colours
