$ 185  

In this workshop you will learn the art of soldering and collage. You will have many papers and vintage photos to choose from for your collage. (Or if you have any family ones you would want to use, please bring them).

We will start off by designing the collage with laces, buttons, rhinestones, bits and pieces to fit into 8” x 10” glass. Once your design has been glued down and finished, we will take them and solder it in between two pieces of glass.

The frame will be topped off with a resin piece that you will paint before affixing it to the soldered piece.
 

Materials Fee $30 paid at beginning of class includes:

Glass, copper tape, papers, book pages, images, vintage papers, rhinestones, buttons, words, small bits and pieces, resin design piece.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Any bits and pieces you would want to personalize in your collage.Cookie sheet for your solder station
