Giant Rainbow Butterfly
Two-week workshop – August 9 & 16
Ages 12 and up, up , up – good for beginners too!
This rainbow butterfly has a wing span of over 14 inches. Two colors to choose from! Either the rainbow or a beautiful pink and purple gradation. The substrate is made of sturdy sheet metal with a handy hang tab on the back. It can be hung outside during the warm months or inside all year long. We will be using, recycled glass tile, ceramics, vitreous glass, and lots of sparkly things…
Week #1, 6:00 – 9:00 – Learn the techniques need to accomplish this project. How to use wheeled glass nippers (it’s not hard, don’t be scared) We will be doing a lot of tile cutting during this session and learn how to use the adhesive.
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.
