The cost for private lessons is $20/hour plus the $5.00 Workshop studio fee. Contact Diane at diane@designsbydhein.com to schedule an appointment.


GLASS MOSAICS -- by appointment (Glass Mosaic Workday scheduled for Saturday, January 20th, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

Occasionally we add glass mosaic workdays to the schedule, but this is a project you can come in any time to make.  We prefer people to make an appointment to make sure there is space and time to complete your project.

All supplies will be available to make 5x7inch or 8x10inch faux stained glass mosaics. If participants prefer to work on a different project, they are welcome to bring other items such as trays, table tops, mail boxes, picture frames, etc. as a base for their mosaic. A 5x7 piece usually takes 2 to 3 hours; an 8x10 piece usually takes 3 to 4 hours. Cost is $25 for a 5x7, $35 for an 8x10.

The first part of the class will consist of gluing the glass pieces to the glass backing. Then the project requires about an hour of time to sit and harden before grouting. It would do well to take a lunch break and come back to finish. Alternately, you could do the grouting at home with materials and instructions provided.

Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.
