All materials included and all levels welcome
Beginners often start with plate smashing. Yes, break plates with a hammer which is as much fun as it sounds! Learn to position the shards and pick grout colors to enhance your design on a picture frame or tile.
Next you will learn to use a variety of materials (rocks, shells, jewelry, mirrors, beads, plate shards, etc.) to create on a particleboard base or picture frame. I will help you take a random group of objects and make a cohesive one-of-a-kind work of art. Learn to use mosaic tools (wheeled cutters and nippers) to cut and shape plate pieces and then learn to grout and finish your work, making plate pieces into a piece of art. It’s fun, freeing and rewarding!
Do you have family items, costume jewelry, photographs, chipped plates, shell/rock/coin collections, buttons, etc. handed down from loved ones that you cherish, sitting in a drawer? Use them to make wall art that you can enjoy daily. We will add complementary materials (rocks, shells, jewelry, mirrors, beads, plates, etc.) from my studio to your supplies to make that special piece. Create art that will make you smile and remember that special person.
