The D&H Technique is a new category of fine art in glass. It is very rich in teaching you finesse, connection, technique, and information that will allow you to develop your talent and skills to the highest level in the area of fine art. The D&H Technique will make a significant difference in your fine art journey and it offers an incredible opportunity for you, whether you come from the world of mosaics, fused glass or stained glass, to develop and demonstrate a high level of fine art finesse.

We offer a series of lessons using the new D&H Technique. It was created by myself (Kala Jarda), when my wife Dianne asked me to make a very special mosaic of a zebra for her, and I spent many, many hours developing this new and unique technique. When the zebra was posted on social media, we were overwhelmed with people who were interested in learning this technique for themselves.

As a result, we have created an academic methodology to teach the D&H Technique by following a specific and understandable procedure to create realistic fine art.

The course following the D&H Technique will allow you to create realistic mosaics of furry animals such as zebras, dogs, horses, etc., as well as among other things, such as mosaics of forests, reflections on water, birds and human hair for portraits.

NOTE: Before registering for this course, please contact contact us via Facebook Messenger. Your application to take our course MUST be approved by us. It is a very challenging course, but one that will provide you with enormous satisfaction if you have the energy, enthusiasm, time and motivation to exploit your talent. Please let us know if you teach mosaics, fused or stained glass, or have a glass business, as there are special requirements in that case.
