TBA...Circle of Light
The Circle of Light project was developed to explore depth and gain understanding of "middle space". Join us to create a mosaic image that has a front and a back to it! Using a clear glass circle we will apply glass tiles to the front third and back third, leaving a third blank space...whaaaat? That's right... It creates an illusion of distance and depth! Join us to learn and discover.We also offer this class as an online tutorial if you can't make the in person workshop Project is completed with a half moon metal stand.
