Mosaic allows everyone to be an artist.
Klaske van Coeverden has specialized in glass mosaic. Her courses include professional support, the correct techniques, an enormous choice of stock and working in a very inspirational environment! When taking a course or doing a workshop of your choice you will be able to create the most beautiful mosaic artworks yourself.
Would you like to have an artwork custom made? This also is possible at ‘Mozaiek met Klaske’.
What is glass mosaic? Why do I enjoy working with glass forms like smalti and millefiori (handmade glass from Italy)? With vitreous glass, cathedral glass, recycled glass and all sorts of various types of glass from all over the world?
Because with glass you can create limitless variations of colored reflections, depth, height, transparency, opacity and form. You can illustrate any story, it being abstract, figurative or fantastical. All is possible!
I would love to pass on this discipline of art to you!

Mosaic courses in the autumn of 2018
In September a new season of courses will start. Choose the one you like and register!
What is the content of the course?
You will learn how to make a beautiful mosaic artwork in an uncomplicated manner. The novice will start the first lesson learning how to handle the presented tools, working materials and the basic techniques. They will be taught how to employ these in various ways and to various subjects. During the following lessons you will choose your own subject to work on. Whilst learning the required techniques you will realize this artwork. There are many examples present which can help you form ideas. Each idea will first be evaluated to check whether it is suitable for a glass mosaic, and if it is, which colours could be used best and which method would be most appropriate. There is a unique collection of tesserae to choose from in well over 1000 different colours.
Is prior knowledge necessary?
No. We will always work in small groups allowing individual support for each participant. Tools will include mosaic wheeled nippers (Leponitt), or a hammer and hardie
