Workshop to be held Aug 22- 24th, 2014

MOSAICS IN CERAMIC TILE AND Mixed Media - FUNCTIONAL AND DECORATIVE PIECES INTRODUCTORY LEVEL

you will learn how to:

-create a simple and effective design based on mosaic language and elements of design

-select and prepare a surface( substrate)  for mosaic tiles

-learn the difference between various tiles, materials, and objects and how you can use them in your mosaic

-become familiar with technical information on adhesives, grouts, and sealers to make a high quality, durable,  and long lasting product





                 
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 tile and various media ( stones, glass, ceramics) 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!
