Morning Mosaics

Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 10-12:30

Fee:

  • one class – $45
  • 4 class package – $145
  • 10-class package – $325

Come try mosaic art!  Beginners start with making a coaster or light switch cover. No need to come with ideas, we just start off learning to use the tools and most make an abstract piece.

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.

Or, you can make a project of your choice 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.  This class is for all levels.

Specialty Classes:

Windows student beach

Windows!

I’m so excited to start up my Window’s classes again! It’s only a 4 hour class (2 hour class prior if you want to cut glass for your project, see below), beginners welcome, no previous art experience necessary!
 
The work dries overnight and pick-up is the next day. All materials included. Don’t need a large window? Make small picture framed-sized pieces. Such a fun class!

Dates:

  • Wed, June 9, 1-5:00, 2021
  • Sat, July 31, 11-3:00, 2021
  • Wed, Aug 18, 1-5:00, 2021
  • Sun, Sept 26, 11-3:00, 2021

Time: 4-hour class

Fee: $185, includes window or two frames (approx. 8×10 to 14×16), and all supplies

Optional: “Lighthouses, Flowers, Water and More,” (combined with Windows class, $225), 2 hour class prior to the windows class if you want to cut glass and make stained glass components for your window!  Without this 2-hour class, you can make a window with the “sprinkle” technique as seen in this picture (no cut glass).  See below class for more information.

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, feel free to bring sea glass, shells, and other items/shards to incorporate into your piece. Bring what you like and I’ll tell you what will work.  Clear items work well so that 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.
The class fee includes all materials (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 $25 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. Long hair needs to be in a ponytail.

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. Check my schedule online for Friday and Saturday class times also.

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.

Windows AND Making lighthouses, flowers, water, trees and more! 

Date:

  • Wed, June 9, 11-5:00, 2021
  • Sat, July 31, 9-3:00, 2021
  • Wed, Aug 18, 11-5:00, 2021
  • Sun, Sept 26, 9-3:00, 2021

Fee: $45, students on a 4 or 10-pack can use one of their classes, or $40 for students who register for both this class and the windows class (see combined option).

Want to learn how to cutting curves and lines?  In this class you will learn how to use mosaic tools and stained-glass tools (wheeled cutters, table straight cutter, scorer, score one cutter) to achieve the cut you desire!  Obviously, all these techniques improve with practice, but you will get a taste of what the right tool is for the right cut, and have practice with each.

This is a wonderful class for:

  • Ongoing students who want to improve their skills
  • new students that want to take a Windows! class and want a more intricate design (i.e. lighthouse, flowers, trees and more)
  • new students that want an overview of cutting skills

This class can be used in two ways.  Some students may use the full class to prepare for the windows class or a larger project (choosing glass and cutting shapes) and others may want to use the last hour to start a small mosaic piece (approx. 4×6”) with the pieces you have cut.

Join us to learn more about glass!  All levels welcome!

You can gather your materials and succulents at home or can use the materials I have at the studio. Inexpensive substrate options from wood to frames will be discussed. In addition, we will learn to make grasses/succulents out of the adhesive putty.

The completed succulents can be used as wall art, as a table centerpiece or used to augment plant pots, picture frames and more.

Fee – $195

This is an introductory class. If you want to further explore creating succulents, you are welcome to do so in my weekly in-studio classes (you can purchase a single class, a 4-pack, or a 10-pack).

Materials will be available for purchase if you would like to practice your new skills at home.

If you are an ongoing student with a class package (4 or 10-pack) you will receive a 10% discount of the class fee.

You will learn to mix and apply a cement based adhesive and about composition, balance, and contrast that will make your piece into work of art!

We will create on a 22×7 inch base with 3 mirrors (above).  Everyone works at different rates, so you may or may not complete your piece in the allotted time.  If not you may need additional class time to complete your piece, or if you are close to finishing, you can bring materials home.  If you would like a different mirror/base that is approximately the same size you are welcome to bring it (wood or a wood composite is best for the base), however it may also take additional time/sessions to complete.

If you need additional classes, you are welcome to attend any of my Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday $45 classes, that are listed under class registration. You can purchase one class, or save per class by purchasing a class package (a 4 or 10-pack) if you want to continue your mosaic journey!  No need to come consecutive weeks, just pick the class(es) you want to attend, check with me to see if there is room in class, and you are all set!  All my classes are mixed levels so you will fit right in.
