This two-session class provides the materials and teaches the basic skills used to create an outdoor mosaic address (with name or house numbers) and/or welcome plaque. Starting with a substrate base of slate, you will learn to plan, arrange, and finish a project using different types of cutting tools, adhesives, and basic grouting and sealing techniques. Personalizing your plaque with 'tessarae' (shards of china, stained glass, marbles, tiles, etc.) is easy with the selection of materials provided, but you are welcome to bring jewelry parts, beads, or even that special china plate of your grandmother's to use, as well. Please bring an apron or smock to protect your clothing and pair of Playtex gloves to wear for grouting. A $30 supply fee is due to the instructor at class for necessary materials and the use of the instructor's tools.
