Description: In this course, students will learn the process of making a tiled mosaic mirror from start to finish.

Students will end the course with a finished mirror ready to hang in their homes! You will be required to provide a 24’’x 24’’ piece of plywood for the class for your mirror to hang on, and we will provide you with the mirror, clay, and other materials required for the class. Age 18+.
