This Funzing Experience:
This taster session is for 1.5 hours
Sign up for a fun, unique experience that allows you to play with glass, show off your creativity, and take home your very own piece of mosaic art.
A mosaic is "a picture or other design constructed from smaller pieces". The choice of materials, in addition to the skill in creating and placing the pieces, contribute to the artistic and practical value of the mosaic.
Your host will demonstrate how to cut pieces of glass, mirror, and vitreous glass tile. If you're interested, you'll have the opportunity to try your hand at this unusual skill. Protective glasses will of course be provided.
Anjali will then explain the principles of mosaic, the use of colour and how to design a piece. You will be provided with pre-cut and tumbled pieces of glass and tile for you to stick on pre-cut pieces of wood, that are approximately 6" x 6" in size. Once you assemble the mosaic, it is left to dry.
Finally you will learn and see a demonstration of "grouting”. The grouting process can take place only 24 hours after sticking the glass, because the adhesive has to dry completely.
In this workshop, the host will either provide you with some powdered grout for you to finish your work by yourself at home, or your piece will be grouted for you and kept ready for collection a week after the date of the experience.
You'll be able to use the beautiful mosaic you produce as a coaster which is the perfect addition to your homeware or a gorgeous, personalised gift!
* Participants are advised to dress for comfort, wear covered shoes and hair tied back.
** Participants are to return to collect their completed glass mosaic 1 week after the workshop

A very new experience, great lesson!
Such a fun class! Anjali is a wonderful teacher. This is truly a can't miss opportunity. :)
Really fun class, made something new and came out of the class feeling relaxed, surprised (about my ability) and inspired about art. Thank you Anjali, keep up the fantastic classes.
The workshop was really fun and Anjali was a lovely teacher. I like that it wasn't too difficult to do and that the piece we created could be functional as well. The atmosphere was cosy and we got to see Anjali's studio and be inspired by her art!
Really enjoyed myself today! Thank you so much Dear Anjali for hosting and guiding throughout the whole process.
