This workshop is essential for anyone interested in creating mosaics for outside applications and gardens. Using stained glass, we will cover how to put mosaics together for permanent outdoor use (surviving freeze/thaw). There is so much to learn when making mosaics for outside, and the suggested projects perfectly balance creativity and technical challenges. The projects have our workshop time frame in mind. You will learn to mix thin-set mortar and tons for tricks to work with this all-important exterior-rated adhesive.

There are 2 project options:

Mosaic House Number or Small Wall hanging: The instructor provides the appropriate exterior-rated substrate and hanging hardware.

Mosaic Stepping Stone: This is a great project as the first exterior mosaic artwork. Students provide own stepping stone (Home Depot, Lowes) A separate supply fee of $45 includes Wediboard with hanging system (a lightweight exterior rated substrate), 12 x 12 or 11x14, or thereabouts, thin-set mortar adhesive, and grout. If students bring their stepping stone, the fee is reduced by $5. Students are responsible for bringing their own glass.

Last but not least, students provide their own stained glass cutting tools and mosaic wheel nipper (all are available from AISG).

Stained glass cutting experience required, previous mosaic experience helpful but not required.
