Studio Time We are offering studio time! If you have taken our Intro to Mosaics Part 1, you can use our studio to work on your project. You will be able to use our adhesives and grout and some of our stock supplies for your projects. We recommend you come in before 11 and 2pm on weekdays so you will not feel rushed and some Saturdays and evenings will also be available. If there is a class in session you are welcome to come in during that time. You can pay a one-time fee of $15 an hour or buy a 10 hours for $90. It’s a great way to have a workspace without a huge rental expense! Our artisans will be around to answer questions and we will soon have a retail supply and tool area.
More Classes Coming! Watch for glass-on-glass workshops, mosaic on furniture, and mosaic sculpture classes – coming summer, 2017.
NOTE: We recognize that people work at different speeds and you are welcome to finish your class project at your own pace with no extra charge for studio time.
