What a treat! Immerse yourself in a full day of creativity, trying stained glass and mosaic, then put your two pieces together to create a beautiful heart artwork that we can't get enough of!
I am collaborating with my studio neighbour, Jo Snowdon, to bring you a unique and exciting all-day workshop experience, where you can try your hand at two crafts in one day to create a mosaic and stained glass heart.
You will get two and a quarter hours with each of us.
With Jo you will be using the copper foil method, also known as the Tiffany technique. You will learn how to:
* score and break the glass
* how to foil your pieces
* how to solder them together.
This is an introduction to stained glass and requires no previous experience. Jo has a range of coloured glass so you can create a design in your favourite colours.
Then with me you will create a mosaic heart. Using the direct method, you will learn how to:
* plan a design
* shape your tiles
* glue your tiles
* grout your finished piece
We won’t get time to grout as the glue will still be wet, but a demo will be given and you’ll be given enough grout to finish your piece at home.
No experience necessary, suitable for beginners.
(Mosaic heart measures approximately 20cm high, the stained glass section sits within it )
