Mixed Media Mosaics Workshop

Description & Registration 

To create a mixed media mosaic art panel (8” X 10”) using a variety of media including glass tiles, polymer clay tiles, jewelry, fabric, and beads.


In this weekend workshop, learn how to create your own tiles with polymer clay using a variety of techniques including stamping, painting, and gold leafing. You’ll also learn how to embellish glass tiles and mosaic with beads. You’ll combine all three mixed media materials—glass, clay and beads—into an abstract mosaic that is not grouted. This class is open to students at all levels, however, a basic knowledge of design would be helpful.

What You’ll Learn

  •   Types of polymer clay, tools, preparation and baking
  •   How to create polymer clay tiles including stamping, painting and gold leaf techniques
  •   Techniques to transfer images (ink jet & laser) onto polymer clay
  •   Ways to incorporate fabrics, beads and found objects into your clay mosaics

  •   How to embellish glass tiles with paint, stamps, mica powders
  •   Techniques for using beads in mosaics
