MOSAICS IN CERAMIC TILE AND TALAVERA - FUNCTIONAL AND DECORATIVE PIECES INTRODUCTORY LEVEL




Students may wish to take the whole week  with workshops A and B
or just one part  -- the difference is in the methods - direct and indirect
please read below for workshop descriptions on  the techniques

  WORKSHOP A - Monday - Wednesday

direct method with talavera ceramics, tile and pottery
                 



 

  In this workshop we review techniques for working with the "direct" method which allows for relief and sculptural applications  - students design a project they can complete in

2 days.  It is created with talavera and tile and we work on setting directly onto a surface which may or may not incorporate relief or sculptural elements. Mirrors, frames, plant pots, wall hangings, "nichos"... or a special project I can facilitate .. for example last spring we made a beautiful medicine wheel for a herb garden!



Metodo directo con ceramica de talavera, azulejo , y ceramica

Vamos a revisar metodos para crear una pieza que requiere relieve or que sea escultural  una pieza de aproximadamente 20 x 20  cm... tambien podrias traer materiales tuyas para incorporar en tus obras



  Indirect Method  - Workshop B Wednesday - Friday



Indirect method ( Architectural applications and tables) with talavera tile and ceramic


learn how to make a table top, inset for a kitchen or bath feature,  tile  accent border or what ever your imagination leads you to.The focus is to create a portable mosaic mounted on mesh which can then be transfered to a permanent site or base for installation. The piece is done with the intention of having a flush surface which can be grouted and easily cleaned and used as a surface,
