Family Name or Welcome Sign
Two-week workshop – August 23 & 30, Ages 14 and up, up , up – good for beginners too!
Create your own house plaque! This mosaic will be built on a cement paver so it will sit nicely by your front door or in your garden. The word tiles are hand-stamped, glazed, and fired therefore we will need at least 2 weeks’ notice if you would like a tile with your family name. *Please leave the last name in the comment box at checkout. If no name is given we will assume you want to use a Welcome tile which we always have on hand at the studio.
Week #1, 6:00 – 9:00 – Garden scene, landscape, or abstract? We’ll take some time to explore the giant wall of rainbow tile and come up with a design. Learn the techniques needed to accomplish your unique family plaque. How to use wheeled glass nippers and adhesives (it’s not hard, don’t be scared)
HOMEWORK – You will be sent home with the tools and adhesives to work on your project. Or come back during an open studio time to work on it. Summer hours are Tuesday and Thursday 3:00 – 8:00
Week #2, 6:00 – 8:00 – Grout Party! I’ll provide some summer refreshments and snacks as we have fun grouting together. But let’s get real, sometimes life gets in the way and homework doesn’t get done. If you didn’t get a chance to finish, you can use the second session to do some tile work and grout another day.
