Stained Glass Mosaic Class

Stained Glass Mosaic 3 week Class

This class runs three Thursday evenings (May 9, 16, and 23) from 6pm - 8 pm

The class offers students the opportunity to make a full-sized stained glass mosaic, choosing from a variety of designs.

Students, regardless of experience with mosaic-making, will be provided instruction and guidance throughout the processes of creating and grouting a stained glass mosaic piece using the tools and supplies provided by Cricket Mosaics and Three Rivers Art Glass.  In the class, we will cover concepts such as glass cutting and nipping, adhesives, mosaic techniques, and grouting.

Students are requested to bring their own frame to class with them.

A full description of items needed for class is here: Mosaic Class Supply List

The following items are to be supplied by each Student

A frame with an accompanying piece of clear glass.  Frames can be made of any material, and should be roughly 8”x10”.  Frames that are larger require more time and glass than may be possible during this 3-week class.  (I tend to use old picture frames and remove the backing.  You can also use old framed wall art.  Goodwill is a wonderful resource for used frames.  They are usually priced between $3 and $5.)  If you are not sure whether what you have will work, please feel free to contact me (412.848.0523).

Goggles or eye protection.  I always suggest wearing goggles during cutting/nipping and when using the grinder..  There is always a chance of flying glass!  If you wear glasses on a regular basis, you won’t need goggles.  If you don’t have any, I will have a few extra pairs to share.

Closed-toe shoes.  Glass shards and bare feet don’t mix!

These items will be supplied by Cricket Mosaics and Three Rivers Art Glass (included in the class price):

A Design:  I will have a selection of 5 designs to pick from with an option to draw your own. Because this is a beginner class, we will keep it simple and doable in the time allotted. Draw your own designs must be sketched out and approved before the first  session.

Glass cutting tools.  Nippers, grozing pliers, running pliers, hand files, and glass cutters are all available for your use during the class.  A grinder is also available in the studio..

Stained glass.  I have a large variety of broken pieces of glass, as well as some full sheets.  If there is something you KNOW you will want, I may be able to get specific colors, etc.

Adhesives.  Everyone will have their own!

Grout.  There will be a light-colored neutral grout and a dark-colored neutral grout to choose from.

Grouting tools.  Rags, sponges, all you’ll need!

Instruction and guidance.  I will be there with you every step of the way!
