Over the past ten years I’ve taught mosaics to over one thousand students in my live studio classes in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Last year I began offering my Mosaic Window Hanging & Mirror Class - by far my most popular studio class – online.
Since starting this new venture, I’ve had nearly 300 online students from all around the world including Australia, New Zealand, UK, California, Texas, Minnesota, New York, Florida, Bermuda (whoa!) and everywhere in between! It’s been so fulfilling and amazing. Students tell me again and again how excited they are to have access at all this information without having to book a flight and hotel!
As a quick introduction, here are the top ten benefits of taking this course. If you want additional information – there’s plenty more below:
Here’s the buzz:
More Than Just The Basics…
This class is more than just an introduction to mosaics. The information provided in this class can be applied to endless mosaic projects, not just windows and mirrors. This class gives you a strong foundation of skills and resources that will ensure success in future projects, and save you time and money.
Connect With Other Students…
In addition to the class materials, I have also created a private Facebook group for my online students – an extra perk of taking the class. Nearly 100 students are interacting daily, sharing feedback, support and photos of their work in progress. They post links to new resources and materials they are discovering and pictures of exciting new storage options for their work spaces. It’s so much fun! I was worried about losing the community aspect of my classes when offering them online but this Facebook group is going strong and I love it!
Here’s what makes this class unique:
For the Mosaic Window Hanging & Mirror Class I literally recorded myself, step by step, as I made the window hanging you see in the video above. Then I went back and voiced over exactly what I was doing, what tools I am using, what materials I’m using, and why. I take you step-by-step from preparing the base to designing the mosaic, adding tesserae, grouting and finishing the piece.
It is designed just like my studio classes. And it also gives you the tools, techniques and skills that you can apply to any mosaic project you might be inspired to try. And since it’s an online course you can access these materials again and again. Try different styles, designs and techniques with each new piece.
Quite a few of the things that I’m going to show you in this class are what I consider to be true “trade secrets” including how to make painted tapestry glass, how to make gold leaf glass, how I design my mosaics, what tools I use (and don’t use), and a whole lot more.
In fact, the course includes over thirty separate short videos, each of which will give you ideas, materials, tools, tips, tricks and techniques to apply to your next mosaic project.
How I Built My Career As A Mosaic Artist…
I literally built my career as a mosaic artist by spending several years almost exclusively making mosaic window hangings. In the introductory video I show you how I was introduced to the world of mosaics and how my work evolved over time from simple glass-on-glass mosaic windows to mixed media, larger bases and the incorporation of new and more advanced mosaic techniques.
It is my hope that this class, and the way it is presented, will inspire you to make not just one but many mosaics using different materials, bases and tools and techniques. These first couple videos set you up for success!
Introduction to mosaic tools, materials and techniques:
This next series of videos will introduce you to the tools, materials and techniques that you can incorporate in your mosaic window hanging or mirror.
Mosaic Window Sample Videos:
In this next group of videos we take all the tools, materials and techniques that we have learned and put them together to create a unique mosaic window hanging. I’ll show you how I designed and created a floral mosaic window hanging. Each flower in the design incorporates a different mosaic technique. You’ll be able to see each technique being applied in clear detailed video.
Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Grouting:
This next series of videos covers everything you ever wanted to know about grouting your mosaic, including removing the fear of the mess.
Applying The Finishing Touches:
Last but not least, these videos show you how to put the finishing touches on your mosaic so you can display it with pride.
In addition to the class videos I’ve also put together my personal list of specific suppliers, products and tools that I recommend, each with links for your convenience:
Whew! That’s a lot of information. Are you inspired? Then sign up for the class!
Here’s what happens after you sign up…
Once you sign up you’ll have instant, 24/7 unlimited LIFETIME ACCESS to all of the videos and resources above. Just log in and get started! All of the videos and resources are right at your fingertips. Some students have emailed me saying they were up all night watching the videos for several nights in a row! You can do that too, but it’s not required as you will have unlimited access to all of these materials as many times as you want and for as long as you could possibly need. So you can watch videos at your own pace, you can jump around to specific techniques, watch in whatever order and at whatever pace you prefer. It’s all up to you!
You also receive these bonuses:
There are also two bonuses that come along with this class. These bonuses might be just as valuable – if not more valuable – than the class itself:
Bonus #1: Sharra’s Mosaic Secrets – Facebook Group
Members of the Mosaic Window Hanging & Mirror class get exclusive access to Sharra’s Mosaic Secrets Facebook group. This is a private group, so only others who have taken or are taking this class will have access. This is a highly interactive group with photos, feedback and discussions that will keep you inspired. People are sharing not only pictures of their work in progress but of their studios, how they set up their spaces, how they store things, where they get certain materials and so on. Being a part of this group recreates the live studio class atmosphere so that you aren’t just toiling away on a project all alone but have the access and support of an entire community of mosaic students and artists.
Bonus #2: [Mosaic Windows] Email Course
In addition to all the materials above, you’ll also receive an email course that compliments all of this information. Over the first few weeks of your course, you’ll receive a series of emails that give you a more depth discussion of the course content. We all learn in different ways. The email course gives you additional structure, another layer of learning, and a different perspective on the material. You might watch a demonstration video one time and get one insight. But, after reading about it in the email course, you might pick up something entirely new! I want you to get as much out of this course as possible and that’s why I have added all of this extra material to help you succeed!
Bonus #3: Anytime, Anywhere, From Any Device, At Your Own Pace
Once you register for this class you’ll have access to it at anytime – day or night – on any device – your phone, your tablet or your PC – anywhere that you have online access. And you have lifetime access so you can go at whatever pace you want and go through the course as many times as you want.
Here’s how you register:
By registering for this class you’ll receive unlimited lifetime access to the Mosaic Window Hanging & Mirror Class. The price for this class is $150. As soon as you sign up you’ll have instant access to all of my mosaic videos and resources. Shortly after you sign up you’ll receive access to the Facebook group and start receiving the Mosaic Window Hanging & Mirror Class email course. You’ll be on your way to mosaic mastery in no time!
