Happy Bird Sculpture...Glass Tile Mosaic

Santa Barbara School of Mosaic Arts...Santa Barbara, CA...6/8


We are pleased to announce returning to SBSMA to present our Happy Bird Sculpture workshop. While the project may look crafty, it is actually a great lesson in mosaics wrapped into one fun project. Like most of our workshops we present, the focus is on tools & materials and the project is a vehicle to express that approach. You will learn the basics of andamento...how to transition from one area to another...how to choose shape and texture to convey interest and more will be covered in our intuitive approach to mosaics! Great for novice and excellent for beginner and intermediate levels....the more experience the more you can focus on design, but our easy to understand approach will make you successful...all you have to do is try! Join us and see why these affordable workshops are a fun way to learn mosaics. All inclusive at $175/pp + $35 mat fee

Working directly in the frame gives a finished look to your mosaic. Learn nipping and fitting skills for both types of mosaic making in this workshop!

Please note:Some hand strength and can-do spirit necessary to help you be successful!
