These little garden bird mosaics are designed to interact with their environment, reflecting and refracting light so that they change throughout the day.
On this one day workshop you will produce a stained glass mosaic bird on a stalk to brighten up your garden. You will be able to make a bird of your choice from a limited selection of shapes.
Skills covered on the course will include mapping out of your original design, basic glass cutting, stained glass mosaic techniques, and grouting techniques.
This course is suitable for all levels although glass cutting skills are a bonus.
The materials cost will be £6 on the day to include Acrylic bases, metal rods, glue, glass, grout, all equipment needed.
