In this course you will learn the technique of mosaicing with stained glass on thick acrylic to produce a glorious rainbow sun catcher for your garden.
Initially you will learn simple glass cutting techniques, as well as how to use a glass grinder. You will be taught how to glue your glass on to the acrylic to avoid grout bleed, and will be taught how to grout your final piece.
You will be provided with a pre-cut and drilled acrylic base. You will have a choice of three shapes. There will be basic design ideas and examples available on the day, but you are welcome to bring your own ideas or we can work on one together. Initially everyone will be taught about how cut glass and how to approach the project. Each process will be clearly demonstrated. After that you can work at your own speed.
We will be aiming to grout in the late afternoon, but if you would prefer to work on the designing, glass cutting and gluing elements all day, you will be sent home with grout and detailed instructions on how to do it at home.
Small groups of no more than 4/5 will enable one to one help to be available all day.
The studio is well ventilated, and has a HEPA filter.
Please bring an apron and a packed lunch (you will not be able to purchase one close by.
