Introduction to Mosaics

December 2 -3, 2017
10 am to 4 pm
Adult / Teen Workshop

Design and  fabricate a 8” X 8” mosaic using handmade Mexican tiles called smalti. These tiles have unusual variations of color and texture, and Lisa will bring a wide variety of colors for students to experiment with. We will learn how to cut the tiles into a variety of shapes and arrange them to best emphasize the lines and shapes in your design. You will go home with all the information that you need to continue making mosaics on your own. Students should bring photos, books, and sketches as inspiration for mosaic designs. If you have some things sized for 8” X 8” that will be very helpful. (materials cost per student: $40) All supplies will be provided in class.

All materials will be provided. A materials fee of $40 can be paid to instructor. All experience levels welcome.
