Learn Stained Glass Mosaics
This is an All-Level two day stained glass mosaic intensive. The students create a 12″ custom framed mosaic Flower art piece while learning and experiencing the whole stained glass mosaic process from start to finish gaining the skills and confidence to continue creating mosaics at home. The class is currently limited to 10 students, though it is usually between 3-6 students.
Attending a mosaic class in Illinois brought a new dimension to my glass art. So inspiring! ~ Ginny from Sycamore,IL - Student on the Kasia Mosaics Tour
No previous mosaic or art related experience is required. Kasia will guide the students through the whole process and provide a selection of flower designs for the student projects. All the designs are created by Kasia with the intention to teach the use of repetitive shapes to create a successful mosaic while practicing cutting glass – an essential skill in the kind of art Kasia creates. The designs are well suited for a beginner allowing him or her to complete the project during class time though each one can also be utilized by an intermediate student who chooses to put more detail into the design or to add their own flair to it.
Students are welcome to come to class up to 15 minutes early to set up and get comfortable. Anyone who shows up earlier can take advantage of the Mmm Coffeeshop in the courtyard of the building. The class starts promptly at 10am as it is jam packed with information and all students work to complete their project in the class time so showing up on time is key. Complimentary coffee, tea and water are available through out the class both days.
Upon arriving in the studio, the students go through their template packet and choose one for the class project. The class starts out with Kasia giving various demos of glass cutting and an introduction of the tools (glass scoring tools, running pliers, flathead tile nippers and wheeled nippers). The students follow by practicing cutting glass while Kasia gives pointers and tips prior to approaching the project. A color palette is discussed as a group and Kasia helps students individually to arrive at a good combination.
I took a weekend class during the 2015 US tour and loved it! Kasia is incredibly talented and willing to share her skills and secrets with students. Watching her cut a tiny circle of glass with tile nippers is mesmerizing. I taught myself mosaics and had been doing them for a few years, but learned many things during her class that have impacted my process and given me more confidence in my favorite hobby. ~ Sally.

The mosaics come to life very quickly during the two day class. The finished, framed projects are impressive for sure but the process of how they come together is equally fascinating..
