Michele Petno - Amazing Mandala Style Mosaic & Smalti Abstract Workshops


Coming soon... 

Amazing Mandala Style Mosaic Workshop - 2 days



In this class you will learn how easy it is to design and create your own colorful, textural and meaningful mandala style design. Learn the history of the Mandala including the spiritual & psychological meanings of a mandala and why humans are so drawn to circles.

Whether this is your first mosaic, or you are looking for a new project that is easy, fun and relaxing, then this is for you!  Michele will show you how you can recycle your own collection of beads, millefiori, glass rods & stringers and use some very unusual elements as well as learn cutting techniques to create new ways to use your beads and millefiori. Learn the properties and versatility of Apoxie Sculpt - no grouting!!  The skills you learn in this course can be used for a multitude of other projects, including 3-d. 

What to bring:  Your own wheeled mosaic cutters & tweezers.  All other tools & materials are included but you are encouraged to bring your own leftover beads or millefiori. (Kismet has varieties of cutters and tweezers for sale if you want to purchase)
