Class Description: Join Solly in this 3-day workshop where you will be expected to step outside your comfort zone by exploring Solly’s ways of working, from choosing images to laying glass pieces, before employing his signature double reverse technique, whereby the mosaic pieces are placed dry onto an underlying image, flipped over, adhered to its substrate, and then flipped back to its original orientation. Solly will share how he chooses and image, and time will be set side during lunch or other breaks to practice his techniques to experience no stakes mistakes. As time allows, Solly would entertain discussions on achieving realism. Students will make a 12 x 12 stained glass-on-glass mosaic wall-hanging suitable for indoors. There will be a choice of three images to render into a mosaic. Non-beginners are encouraged to bring their own photos of size no larger than 9.25 inches in either direction.

Pros : this class broadened my view, enjoyed learning new technique that is very useable & adapted & will make my mosaic work better & easier to get the effects I want. John is a good & very patient teacher as we learn to make use of his techniques. They are clever, doable, to enhance the mosaic making process. John is good at tuning into the needs of each individual student, with no judgement his comments improve the direction & application of the technique, &=serve to improve the students work. I have lots of new ideas & feel creative & wanting to do more mosaics. It was particularly wonderful to have access to so much glass to inspire me & to work with. Delph is truly a treasure house, wonderful to be in this space. I also enjoyed having good space to work in, good chairs, the wonderful easy chairs in the main room, all promoting comradery with other mosaicists & stimulating new ideas. John created a good atmosphere for learning & collaboration. All excellent.
Cons : 3 days was a lot for my back, so I self paced it.
Other Thoughts : Looking forward to more visiting artists. How about Laura Rendell. Yulia Hanansen.
