Well a few bandages and 13 hours later we all managed to finish our mosaic glass pieces yesterday. Left here at 7:30 and got home at 8:40 and that would be a.m. to p.m.! But it was SOOOOO worth it. Donna and Karen joined Sandi, Diane and I yesterday. They had both already done the class but were so hooked they decided to do second pieces. And the next workshop is already arranged for September! So here are a few pictures of class in action and finished pieces:
Diane hard at work! Look Up Di!!!!
Sandi and Cindy consultingGlueing down the glass!
Ahhhh the dirty part – grouting!
Diane’s piece grouted – WHAT a difference the grouting made – they just popped after they were cleaned up.
My piece grouted – now Cindy let Sandi and I polish and polish and polish – half an hour later we were still polishing – arms were getting reallllly sore and Cindy laughed and told us we could have stopped 20 minutes earlier – but hmmm did look reallllly good and shiny!
Donna’s piece – grouted – she started and finished this piece YESTERDAY. As did Karen (well we left Karen with Cindy and hmmm not sure if she slept over!!!) All in all a fun fun day – Cindy you are amazing (well so were the rest of us but we should try to be humble!)
You guys are amazing! so beautiful… I want to do this 🙂
I’m taking your holiday workshop in Picton BUT…………….. is there still room in the mosaic class in September ? How can we get info on that ?
Each project is stunning!
I love these pieces! I haven’t done mosaic work in years, but now you’ve got me thinking about doing a piece for our cabin!
Oh great idea I am desparate to get mine up!!!! Gord is golfing though so hmmm will be in a few days….
Each one a masterpiece…the stained glass mosaics, I mean!!
Each hooker, a ‘work of art’…x-tra special creative souls whom I’m happy to call, friends!!

Hi Laurie yes definitely a great instructor but i also have very creative friends!!!!
Wow, Loretta….are you teaching this as well????
Love these! I have lots of glass scraps from stained glass work and have done a little bit of mosaic work. I just recently acquired an old wooden pane window. Have been looking for inspiration to put it to use. I’d LOVE to give this a try!
This is probably one of those stupid questions, but do you work over top of the window glass or remove it?
Hi Karen NOT a dumb question – yes you leave the old glass in the frame and glue the glass pieces onto the glass and then grout it. It was fun and we used a lot of scraps of glass rather than cutting up big pieces…
What glue would you recommend?
Wonderfull work ladies!
I’m info crafts, and I even collecter 5 old windows and wanted to do something similar. What glue are you using and what type or grout ?
You mention polishing, when do youpolish it? After the grout bas dried out? With special polishing paste?
Lots or questions I know, but I found inspiration looking to your pictures!
Regards, Chantale 🙂
Okay Ladies where is this class? I’m in California.
What type of grout do you use?
What kind of gun and glue do you use?
