Join award winning artist Marian Shapiro for a fun weekend exploring the use of repeated patterns and exciting colour combinations to produce unique decorative mixed media mirrors.

These extravagantly decorative mirrors make wonderful gifts or just a great present for yourself.  This technique can also be used to make art mosaics which imitate fabric or embroidery.  Using a mix of materials, including smalti, fused glass gems, beads, millefiori and more, you will make a mirror 30 x 30 for indoor use.

We provide the mirror base, adhesives, colourants and a glittering lolly shop of materials to choose from. Please bring extra items such as broken jewellery, shells or beads to swap and share. The workshop is supported by presentations and course notes.
