Mosaic Workshop with Nikki Pynn
April 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Let Your Imagination FLY!
Nikki Pynn is a local artist who specializes in stained glass and after completing many projects has a collection of multi-colored, multi-shaped scraps of glass left to make into a host of mosaics and other small projects. So we invite you to the Studio with Nikki to design by free association, a process in which you rely on your vision and past visuals to create a work of art that isn’t preconceived. By recycling these pieces into a transparent arrangement, a motif will form. Let what happens naturally, be it representational or abstract. The stained glass will be prepared for safe handling and finished pieces will go home ready to hang.
There are three opportunities to attend:
April 26, 2017 – 6:30-8:30 pm
May 3, 2017 – 6:30-8:30 pm
June 3, 2017 – 2:00-4:00 pm
