Flower samplers will be shaped from slate, smalti, stained glass, bottle glass, ceramic tile and vitreous tile. 

In this class, it's a great opportunity to learn the technique for shaping flowers 3D, using tinted thinsets, texuture and assemblage of the mosaic.

Once students have completed this workshop, they are ready to explore Op shops, second hand shops, garage sales, boot sales and markets (maybe their own cupboards) to source crockery for future projects.
This workshop is the learning curve!  So relax, just book in and get ready to take your mosaic florals to new heights!
