06 Dec 2012 SCRAP Workshop: Tempered Glass Mosaics w/ Reddy Lieb
Join us for artist Reddy Lieb’s first weekend workshop at SCRAP! Her tempered glass mosaics glitter magically as they refract light giving a glimpse of fanciful veiled collages underneath. Reddy will show participants how to transform small eye-catching pieces of broken glass into beautiful mosaics. Come learn how to work with this magical material and create a recycled mixed media piece. Participants will work with collage materials found at SCRAP and adhere them to a piece of wood, a box or other 3D form. Then, you will cover the collage with tempered glass. The second day of class the mosaics will be finished with colored grouts to enhance the design.
For over 30 years Reddy Lieb has been working with glass to create both conceptual and functional work. She uses recycled materials in her work and in 2000 was the Artist-in-Residence at Recology San Francisco, aka the garbage dump. In 2004, she received an MFA from the California College of Art. Reddy loves inspiring the creative process in people and has been doing so for over 20 years.
