Mosaic Moments at Artascope
One of our favorite members and our owner’s mom, Lynne Bickford, invited 4 of her friends to join her in Laurie Spugnardi’s Mosaic Mirror/Table class last week. The ladies has an absolute ball. Lynne has been one of Laurie’s repeat students over the past few years and has started making so many beautiful pieces, that she has been selling them through our gallery and will be one of the many highlights of our upcoming Holiday Show and Sale this December.

The ladies worked very hard to create some lovely designs and have taken the project from start to finish. Laurie teaches them the proper way to mortar the designs onto their desired goods and grout their pieces for a finished look once the mortar has dried. The results are beautiful as always!

Mosaic Garden Stone Class Review

Mosaic Garden Stone
Summer is definitely the time to be taking this class. Taught by the talented ceramist, Laurie Spugnardi, this class always draws a crowd. The students work with beautiful glass tiles, shells and other ceramic goodies to create very personal garden stones for their homes. We are always excited to see what students come up with. Laurie works with each student on sketching out a design and creating with with the right colors and shapes before laying the final design in their mold. Once they are satisfied with their image, the cement is poured and they wait…..students will return the next day to pick up their garden stones. It’s always exciting to see the final product. Lots of smiling faces for sure!

Laurie returns in September to teach the two week Mosaic Table/Mirror Class on Monday nights, Sept 22nd & 29th. The class is from 6-9pm both nights and the total cost for the class is $125. Please preregister online or call the studio at 207-799-5154 for details. http://www.artnightout.com/sept2008.htm
