Come join the Mosaic Renaissance!

You are invited to join me for mosaic classes and workshops in my studio in the historic Waltham mills. Learn traditional and contemporary techniques using glass smalti, Venetian vitreous glass tile, ceramic tile and colored grouts as you create your own original mosaic panels.

Participate in a scheduled class, or create your own group and come on a schedule that works best for you! Family groups and children are welcome.

Teachers who would like to create mosaics in their schools are invited to learn techniques for individual or group projects. We can also work together to create projects in other locations, such as your home or school.

For commissions, competitions, and teaching information, please address inquiries to:

The Waltham Mills Mosaics Studio is located at 144 Moody Street, Building 18, in Waltham, Massachusetts. This historic mill building has been home to the Waltham Mills Artists Association since 1976. The mosaics studio carries on the tradition of fine design, handwork and industry that have occupied this building for more than a century.

Working with glass smalti from Mexico (5/8" square) and Venetian glass mosaics (3/4" square), students create original mosaics on panels. Topics covered include design, panel preparation, purchase of materials, cutting of mosaics, cements and adhesives and grouting. Classes are offered both for new students and for mosaic artists who would like to develop advanced, individual projects.

Mosaics make great family projects. Families come to the studio to work on individual or group projects in a creative and supportive environment. I also work with families in their homes to collaborate on mosaics for their own environments, inside or out. Families participate in all phases of design and fabrication. Projects include cabinet panels, wall murals, tables, and furniture decoration.
