GLASS MOSAIC EYES - Symbols of Vision and Protection

Instructor: Laurel True


Dates and times of next class TBA - please call or send us an email if you're interested in taking this course.


Description: The eye has been used around the world for centuries as a symbol of vision, creativity and protection. Cultures around the world display this image in their homes, in artwork and as a talisman to see into the future and keep safe. The Eye is a universal symbol that is both sacred and secular. Class will include a digital presentation showing the use of the Eye around the world in many different contexts.  


Join artist Laurel True for a fun, social weekend workshop in which students design and create their own Mosaic Eye using colored glass, mirror and other beautiful materials. Bring on the bling!  


Instructor will offer two sizes of pre-prepared Eye substrates for students to choose from (9” or 12”) and provide instruction in cutting mirror and glass and setting mosaic pieces using a specific formula.  


Students will grout their Eyes on day two. Grouting demo will include the use of mirror flake in grout to achieve light catching effects.  


Patterns will be provided to personalize, or students can design their own Eye. Students are encouraged to bring additional materials to work with if they would like to. (Such as things that might have special meaning to them, glass, mirror, jewelry, stones, crystals, rhinestones, beads, etc…)
