What is Open Studio, and How Does it Work?
Any time the doors of my Astoria Oregon art studio are open, class is in session. To create a mosaic, come in, choose and pay for the project you want to do, then we'll teach you how to use all the tools properly and safely. After that, you have full access to all the things in the studio - the glass, beads, baubles, shells, rocks, buttons, ceramics, jewelry parts... whatever! You don't have to bring anything with you but a little creativity and willingness. You won't finish that first day, so you'll leave everything here and we'll store it for you until you come back - on your schedule. When you're done gluing, you'll learn how to grout it. And you're finished! All for one low price - projects start at only $30. You can't beat that deal!

Yes! Birthday parties, reunions, retreats... whatever!
If you have a group getting together and you want to do something creative, let's talk! We can do it here in the studio,
or ask about the "Mobile Mosaics" option.
We can bring all the fun to you!
