Sparkling Jewel Mosaic Mirrors with Angie Heinrich

Spend a weekend with the lovely Angie Heinrich for this mosaic mirror class and walk away with a beautiful finished sparkling jewel to hang on your wall.

You will learn the fundamentals of the “direct method” as we work intensively with beads and tile to create a textural jewel of soothing symmetry. Angie passes on the techniques she has honed over the past 14 years and through the thousands of pieces she has created using beads and glass tiles. All materials provided, including lots and lots of beads.  Come to learn; come for the pure joy of creating.

You will not believe the gorgeous mosaics even first time artists are able to create under Angie’s warm and careful guidance. Beautiful mosaics and the happy creators that Angie has inspired over the years can be seen here: http://tinyurl.com/zetamari-classes.
