Directions to Glass Shack Mosaic Studio in downtown Ann Arbor; Mosaic Class Info.

(734) 904-4663

Our new address is 201 E. Liberty Street, Suite #23 (located on Liberty St. near the corner of Fourth Ave. and Liberty. The entrance is in between Cloverleaf Restaurant and Chelsea Flower Shop. Go up the stairs, turn right, pass through a door and we are the last door on your right at the very end of the hallway.

Come join the fun in our urban, but cozy little studio for a relaxing mosaic class; registration is on-going. We try to cater to your schedule and are open during the day, evenings and weekends for mosaic classes. For in-studio glass and supply shop, we are open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10:30am- 1:30pm and also by appointment. We are very flexible and can open for you on other days, weekends, and evening hours!

Here's how mosaic classes work: Usually people take a class once a week for 2 hour sessions. Fee is $35.- per 2 hour class session with a one-time only $25.00 material fee. Use of tools and glass are all included. Student discounts apply!

You will learn various ways of cutting glass while designing your own personal mosaic.

Typically people start their mosaics on a 12"x12"piece of wood. I carry several sizes which you may choose from, or if you want a specific size just let me know. Some people bring in a table, or mirror that they would like to make their mosaic on as well. 

Here is an image of what the mosaic process looks like:

Well, the person may be surrounded by lots of shards. We do get messy and carried away a bit sometimes, to a point where our work space may even look like this:

We offer group mosaic classes, or private classes too if you like. All ages are welcomed! Gift certificates available. 

We also have an in-studio glass and supply shop that is stocked with stained glass made by such companies as Youghiogheny, Uroboros, Bullseye, Wissmach, Armstrong and Spectrum. Stained glass and mosaic tools are also available.

My personal favorites:
