Program Description

Event Details

Discover the timeless craft of mosaic art in our engaging two-session workshop at the library. Mosaics is a 4000-year-old art form that uses bits of decorative glass, tiles, and other materials to create geometric designs. This program is perfect for beginners and those looking to refine their skills in this ancient art.

In two sessions we will learn about the history of mosaic art and each individual will complete a mosaic project. We will discuss the four elements of mosaics: the tessera, adhesives, substrates, and grout. Various project mosaic templates will be provided for students to use. 

Please only sign up if you can attend both sessions. Due to the required drying time, mosaic art can not be completed in one day. This hands-on workshop is for adults and involves handling stained glass pieces and grouting mosaic pieces. If you wish to bring a friend and complete one project together that is fine. Please note it in the registration comments. 

Please dress appropriately and wear an artist's smock if you have one. The library will provide all materials for this workshop.
