Do you stare in fascination at coloured glass, loving the light that glints off it when the sun or a candle hits it just so?
Join Pippa Beck of Pippa Beck Mosaics for this 2-part glass mosaic workshop and light up your October! This is a 2-part, four hour beginner workshop on Tuesday, October 5th and Tuesday, October 12th from 6:30pm - 8:30pmEDT both evenings.
In this workshop, you will be introduced to the timeless art form of mosaics. Pippa will share her 20 years of passion and expertise for mosaic-making and you’ll walk away with a beautiful candle lantern and a new skill to build upon.
By the end of this workshop, you will:
- Have a good understanding of different mosaic techniques, materials and tools;
- Know how to safely cut/nip and handle glass;
- Be able to build upon the composition basics you learn from Pippa; and,
- Go home with a uniquely-decorated candle lantern that can be used indoors and out!
Pattern ideas will be provided; however, students will be encouraged to flex their creative muscles and make their own designs. A choice of glass colours and millefiori discs will be available. You may choose to make one for yourself or as a gift.
There is no prerequisite for this workshop - just an interest in learning something new or building on some beginner skills you already have.
Your registration fee includes:
- 4+ hours of personalized instruction, plus support after the session;
- A lantern to decorate up all fancy-like and take home with you;
- A choice of glass colours and millefiori discs will be available for participants to choose from;
- Use of glass cutting tools while in the workshops; and,
- A boredom busting good time and something to look forward to! Ply Studio workshops are always engaging and we promise you will have fun!
