Glass provides a resting place for wine, evening wear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Shatter artistic inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a three-hour Mosaic Express workshop at Maverick Mosaics Art School & Studio in Vienna (a $99 value).
Maverick Mosaics edifies burgeoning crafters with a comprehensive cluster of mosaic-art workshops that nurture imaginative expression and forge a local community of artists. Across three hands-on hours, the Mosaic Express workshop swiftly imparts the key fundamentals crucial to crafting your own ornamental masterpiece from a kaleidoscopic array of colored glass, stone, and broken kaleidoscopes. Maverick Mosaics' skilled glass-crafters ably arm students with the necessary supplies and tools before demonstrating the proper cutting, adhering, and finishing skills. An eye-fetching array of materials ensures endless experimentation with color, pattern, and texture, and, unlike capitalistic rainbow factories, the studio lets each student take home his or her own prismatic creation.
