Class meets on Wednesday, February 19 at the Gibbes Museum of Art and on Wednesday, February 26 at Redux Contemporary Art Center from 6-8:30pm.

In this workshop we will explore the exhibition A Return to the Grand Tour on view at the Gibbes Museum with a private tour of Elizabeth Locke’s collection where we will learn about jewelry history and fabrication techniques of micromosaics. Then students will take that knowledge and create wearable micromosaics of their own! Each student will choose their subject matter, draft a design, and craft their own mosaic from stained glass in a sterling silver pendant. We are thrilled to partner with Redux Contemporary Art Center and Redux artist Olivia Ruxton for this one of a kind workshop!

All materials will be provided, and everyone will leave with a completed sterling silver necklace.

$150 Gibbes and Redux Members | $165 Non-Members
