In conjunction with the Mosaic Exhibition in the gallery adjacent to our studio participants can come and try their own hand at making a mosaic birdhouse. Working with a pre-made wooden form and pieces of glass that can be shaped to suit, participants will learn how to mosaic using the direct method. Participants will be shown how to cut and shape glass pieces using mosaic cutters, glass cutters, and glass grinders.
