Intro to Glass Mosaics with Dany Green

  • Femme Fatale DC 3224 11th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20010 United States (map)

Students will work with glass to create unique fine art mosaics. This class is a fun modern twist on an ancient art practice. During this workshop, you will learn the basics of creating a unique glass mosaic. This workshop is designed to be meditative and stress-reducing with students encouraged to go at their own pace.

What you’ll learn:

  • Creating a unique design

  • Adhering materials (or substrate)

  • Grouting mosaics

  • Bonus tricks and tips of the trade!

Included Materials:

  • Glass pieces

  • Woodbond All-Purpose Glue

  • Wood Panel

  • Your choice of Grout (black or white) as well as grouting process

Mosaic-making is a *two* step process: the first-step is gluing the tessera to the substrate and the second-step is grouting. Dany, your instructor, will finish off your hand-made pieces with either black or white grout (your choice) and you will be invited to come back to pick up your finished piece at a later time.

NOTE: Feel free to bring some of your own materials to add to your mosaic! Some potential materials are: broken glassware, pottery, buttons, jewelry, etc. Please keep in mind that the wood panel is 6x6”. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about what you can bring!
