  • Tempered / “Crash” Glass Mosaics Classes

    scissors

    Have you heard the word on the street about these cool, “crash glass” mosaics?! In this fun and fully interactive workshop, learn to make your own “crash (tempered) glass” mosaic art piece! You’ll start with a flat base (about 12×12″) and then add layers of paint, papers, photos, fabric, glitter, and whatever else suits your fancy! You’ll then cover everything with the oh-so-cool bits of “crash glass” so that your treasures underneath are revealed through the clear glass. Learn how to grout and seal the piece and complete the grouting to “bring the piece to life”. Everything you need is included. Instructor Krystie Rose Millich ( the “Tile Mosaic Girl”) is a lifelong artist and educator who loves sharing her excitement about this beautiful art form. Absolutely no prior mosaic or art experience required!

  • Is there any way that the crash class could be a weekend intensive workshop? I would have to come from Kansas to take it and I wouldnt be able to do it over 2 weeks of evenings? Just something to think about if you would care to offer something like that?

    Also, what is your source for the crash glass? I have been wanting to try this but dont know the most economical way to go about it. Thanks for any information

    • Hi, Cindy:
      You know; it’s funny that you mention this because I was actually thinking just the other day about the possibility of offering weekend intensive classes! I’m glad to know of someone who would be interested. I haven’t scheduled Fall classes yet, but will take this into consideration. Do you think you would have weather-related travel difficulties in October or November, or do you think it would be okay?
      My source for the lowest price (and most easily accessible) TG is Craigslist. It seems like Ive liked glass shelves or store displays best; clear, good size for portability, no frames to remove like windows, doors, etc. I write or call them and make sure the etching “bug” is on one corner of the glass; if it’s not there, it’s not TG, no matter what they say (have gotten non-TG before, thinking it was TG!). I look for 1/4″ thick glass; prefer that thickness b/c it allows for more “islands” of crackled glass, rather than breaking into bits easier like the 1/8″ stuff.
      Please send me an email (tilemosaicgirl@gmail.com) and have me add your email to my mailing list so you’ll be the first to weigh in on or be notified of upcoming classes and events.
      HTH and let me know of any other questions.
      p.s. if you don’t already have Laurel Skye’s book, “Mosaic Renaissance”, I highly recommend it for all kinds of mosaic styles, tools, and techniques, including Tempered Glass!

  • I live in a suburb of Chicago and would like to take a Tempered Glass Mosaic workshop. Will you ever offer a 2 or 3 day workshop? I am willing to travel?

    • Hi, Kathy: So sorry for the delay in responding! I do offer Tempered Glass Mosaic workshops but I hold classes less frequently now than in the past. My temp glass mosaics classes are two days, but usually a week apart. I’m assuming you mean you’re interested in a class that’s two or three days in a row…? I’m planning to set up a temp glass mosaics class in October, but, again, one time a week for two weeks. I would be available for one on one classes, but not over a whole weekend; would you be able to come and do a private class on weekdays? Of course, one on one classes are more expensive than group classes b/c I’m only being paid for my time by one person rather than 6 or more. Please feel free to email me if you want to talk about it further.
