How to use the tools and understand the best options for getting started. For those that have struggled in the past making specific cuts she will guide you to success. Students will start with simple cuts, then move to more challenging ones including deep curves and circles. Once you have practiced a few of these cuts you will work alongside Jennifer as she creates an entire mosaic in real time. You can also try her more challenging templates as your skills improve with each mosaic.
Jennifer shares many of the tips and techniques that will open a whole new world of stained glass to you.
