If you are looking for a creative outlet, but don’t necessarily have any artistic training, then mosaicing is the ideal art form. It is creative, meditative, satisfying and enables unique expression. Learn to make beautiful mosaics for your home or garden. Learn the skill of mosaic from design to completion. Discover the pleasure of mosaics, using glass, vitreous glass, reflective glass and glass gems. Choose from a wide range of products and wooden templates ( eg heart, cupcake, lizard, picture frame, pot, tissue box and many, many more), use some provided designs or design your own. Our mosaic workshops can accommodate beginners or experienced mosaicists. No artistic experience is required. All tools and basic materials supplied.
Glass fusing involves firing glass in a kiln until it reaches a temperature that the glass melts and melds (fuses) together. There are 3 basic levels of glass fusing: full fusing, when the glass melds completely into one; tack fusing when the glass looks like it is tacked together, and slumping, when the glass slumps into the shape of the mould that it is sitting on.
Glass fusing and slumping is a wonderful and exciting process. The skills and techniques are very similar to mosaicing because the glass looks and feels the same as the glass that we use for mosaicing, so we cut and prepare it the same way. (Actually mosaic glass is “cold” and kiln glass is “warm” meaning that it is designed to work effectively in a kiln.) But it looks and feels the same. So the transition from the one process to the other is easy.
