How to Make a Mosaic Lamp for Indoors or Outdoors
Using hand-colored gems or store-bought, you'll create a Magnificent Tower of Light and Color
This class offers you a step-by-step plan to create a glowing colored lamp that can be displayed inside or outside. Using (mostly) cheap, easily-acquired supplies, you will build a lamp like this for yourself or to give as gifts. It is broken into 4 parts (Overview, Strategies to apply alcohol inks, colored grout, and Lighting). Supplies and where to purchase are included. If you're curious about how this information is presented, please see my youtube video, DIY Make a Mosaic Rock for your Garden. The videos in this class are very much like this one (with better music!). Super close-up video of my hands creating my own lamp, as well as well-placed, easy-to-understand,occasionally witty written directions. ;-D
I've been creating mosaic art and teaching mosaic workshops for about 10 years now. My artwork has been in many exhibitions over the years, including most recently the annual prestigiious Crocker Kingsley (2019) and a couple times in Mosaic Art International (Navy Pier, Chicago and Museum of Man, San Diego). Several publications have featured my work including the cover of a college textbook, several how-to mosaic books, the blog Polymer Clay Daily, and magazines like Mosaic Art Now and Polymer Arts.
My first workshop was a community college class where we learned how to make a stepping stone. From there, I've taken many many courses from mosaic artists around the globe. I have taught classes internationally as well.
I really hope you enjoy my classes!
