Collage and Tempered Glass Mosaics with Carol Shelkin October 14th Friday 10a-5p

Learn how to create glittering art by mixing collage with mosaic techniques using Tempered Glass, also known as safety glass and crash glass.  Tempered glass may be used to create beautiful art as well as architectural installations.  Instruction will be given for both interior installations and exterior installations to develop a jewel like surface.  A PowerPoint presentation showing examples of some of the finest works in 3D and 2D tempered glass will be shown.  Lots of one-on-one time is offered along with group discussions.
Each student will begin a mosaic pieces using an overlaying technique with metallic papers, tissues, alcohol inks, foils, glitter, Mylar and MUCH more.  Each student is encouraged to bring a variety of small paper images, photos, poetry or text to include in their mosaic.  This is the perfect medium to permanently incorporate printed imagery and have your treasures underneath revealed through the glass.
Works will not be grouted during the workshop.  A demonstration will be given and grouting can be completed on your own.  No experience is necessary!
