British mosaic artist and author Martin Cheek returns to offer a special 2 day workshop on how to creatively use glass fusions to add dynamic personality characteristics and texture to your birds, owls or fish!!
*****Martin understands that some students are anxious about finishing so he has created kits to remove some of the design anxiety and make your life easier!! You can choose owl, peacock, firebird or underwater scenes. The host will provide the remaining materials. Choose the colors for your kits by the end of January so Martin can bring it to the States!!
Martin will teach cutting, shaping, and classical layout techniques of the tesserae along with some slide shows of his work. He will demonstrate how the use of glass fusions can affect your finished piece and he will guide you in your design and creation process. The course includes lots of hands-on practical demonstrations, slide show presentations and individual instruction so each one can learn about the art of mosaics and develop their own personal style.
Martin does his best to encourage students to finish their projects but he can not guarantee this; his approach is rather to encourage the process and support the speed of the work of his students.
*****TO GUARANTEE YOUR KIT CHOICE AND COLOR, MARTIN WILL NEED YOUR ORDER BY THE END OF JANUARY!! LET LINDA KNOW AND SHE WILL RELAY IT OT HIM. THANKS!!
