50 star rating (1 reviews)

Starts:        Ends: 

Where:  Delphi's Lansing Creativity Center

When:  10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Approx. Material Cost: Everything is included!

Experience Required: Intermediate and Advanced mosaic experience

Type of Class: Demonstration and hands-on project

Class Description:
In this class we will select glass colors using greyscale values rather than traditional colors to
create a still life image in mosaic. Precision cutting techniques will be covered, as well as
andamento, glass selection and shading.
Since this technique is more time consuming, a finished piece is not expected at the end of the
three day workshop, however guidance will be given during the class for the students to be able
to finish their mosaics on their own.
Students will select from one of nine images provided by the instructor for the class. These
images have been chosen for ideal contrast and detail for this technique.
All materials are provided, including a 10x10 inch prepared substrate with photo and drawing,
carbon paper to transfer, glue, and the loan of various tools to use during the workshop.
A variety of mosaic mediums will be provided, including stained glass, hand made ceramic tiles,
unglazed porcelain tiles, filati, and additional elements in a variety of colors.
During the workshop, while there is a bit of instruction addressed to the entire class (cutting,
andamento, and discussion of values/tones) I would say that 90% of the class is one-on-one
instruction and assistance with andamento and glass selection.
An email will be sent close to the time of the workshop with a list of any additional items
students may wish to bring. The instructor will have a limited number of tools available for
students to use as well.
The class usually starts at 10:00 am each day and finishes at 5:00 pm, with a break for lunch.

Safety: Not to fear, glass is safe however we do have a few safety procedures to ensure this.
             Closed toed shoes are recommended when cutting or handling glass.
             Safety glasses should be worn during class. Glasses will be provided if necessary.

Materials Included: Includes all materials - just bring yourself (and your tools if you want to).

Additional Tools & Materials: Students may want to bring: Mosaic nippers or tools to work with stained glass.
The instructor will be contacting students regarding photos for their project and recommending tools.

  •   Great instructor!
By on
Pros : I have not taken this particular class with Donna, but have attended her Color Freedom Pet Portrait class. I believe this is a new class for Donna. Donna is a great instructor! Very patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to working with mixed media with her.
