Pricing/Packages:

One class: $42 Come try mosaics! This is a great activity for parents and children, friends, teachers, students, etc. to get a taste of mosaics. You are welcome to come each week at this time or come when you can. Anyone over the age of 8 is welcome, and they learn to cut the glass! Beginners usually start with coasters, light switch covers or pendants. Give it a try!

4 Pack: – $140 Classes do not have to be consecutive. Beginners start with making a coaster, light switch cover or pendant. The next project is often plate smashing (yes, smashing plates with a hammer) and decorating a picture frame with plate shards. Cheryl will show you how to use the tools to shape the plate shards or glass. If you continue after that, you can make whatever you want with the wide variety of materials in the studio, tables, trays, vases, pendants, and more! For those of you with experience or interest in a specific project, we will talk about where you want to start and go from there. You will be inspired by the other student’s creations and all of Cheryl’s art in the room. Just be sure to register (online) to make sure there is a spot available for you in class!

10 Family Pack:  $325 You can share these 10 classes with children, grandchildren, grandparents, husbands, sisters-in-law you name it, so much fun! But most of the time people buy the 10 pack for themselves and challenge themselves to make increasingly complex mosaics! Classes do not have to be consecutive.

Windows!
This class is taught May-Oct, since the studio windows need to stay open for good ventilation.
Date and time: If you are interested email me and I will put you on the communication list.
Fee: $155, includes window or two frames (approx. 8×10 to 14×16), and all supplies
Ages: 16 and up

We will be learning to mix, pour and de-bubble resin, and the ins and outs of designing windows! Supplies are included however, if you have special sea glass, shells, glass, and other transparent items/shards feels free to bring them to incorporate into your piece. You will be able to pick up your piece the day after the class, as it needs to dry flat.

If you think you will need lots of sea glass you may want to bring extra. Also bring shells, rocks and more although I have plenty. If you are wondering what other types of things you can bring, ideally clear items so the sun can reflect through them if you are going to put the window in a window. If you are going to put it on a wall, any non-porous item can be used. Bring what you like and I’ll tell you what will work.
The class fee of $145 includes all material (including the window or two prepared picture frames). You are welcome to bring your own window (no larger than approx. 36×30). Additional picture frame sized pieces can be made for $20 each.

Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather that can get messy, as the windows need to stay open for ventilation and the adhesive is sticky. So no AC or heat while making windows. There are fans!

The windows need to dry overnight, so you are welcome to pick up your piece during my regularly scheduled classes, Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10-12:30 or Thursdays 4:15-10 pm.

These projects are large, so class size is limited to the first 8 people who register online. Sorry I’m unable to hold spaces open without registration.

Polymer Clay Mosaics
Date and time: Will be planning this soon. If you are interested email me and I will put you on the communication list.

I’m excited to have Amy Marks teach this hands-on workshop! Learn how to create your own tiles with polymer clay using a variety of techniques including stamping, painting, and gold leafing. You’ll also learn how to embellish glass tiles, transfer images onto clay and mosaic with beads. You’ll combine all three mixed media materials—glass, clay and beads—into an abstract mosaic that is not grouted. This class is open to students at all levels. Get your creative mojo on and have some fun!

Amy Marks is the President of the New England Mosaic Society (NEMS). Amy uses a rich color palette and a variety of materials —polymer clay and glass tiles, stained glass, pottery, millefiori, beads, shells and rocks—to create mixed media mosaics that are visually attractive and tactile.
