Tart your Tiles: Glass Tile Pendants & Cabochons

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cdn $45.00 +Kit fee: $20 payable to the instructor the day of the class.

Course outline: A fast and easy mixed-media technique, for turning simple glass tiles, into fabulous gifts! A low-tech, easy project, with huge impact and minimal cost! If you’re looking for quick, easy, and inexpensive, then this is the class for you! Anne Marie Desaulniers will teach you how to splash paint around, recycle images and re-purpose papers for maximum impact! Children’s drawings and hand drawn sketches are also an option (but only for those interested). No experience required, and I’ll bring all the paints! Note: a kit is required; see details below.

Treat yourself to an evening of play that includes paint, paper, chatter and fun!

Skill level: Beginner

Prerequisite: None

Technique: Students will create finished pendants/cabochons, out of commercial glass tiles, waste materials and printed and painted papers.

Bring to class: Scissors and ruler. Gloves, if you don’t like to get paint on your hands. Pencil and ink for drawing, if desired. Additional glass tiles, and glue on pendant bails, may be purchased, from BeadFX, during the class, using your 15% discount.
