Event description

Description


Have you ever walked by a mosaic and wondered to yourself, “Just how did they do that?” By the end of this class, you will be able to show and tell. We will cover the basics of mosaic construction, what to build your mosaic on (a substrate), what to stick it on with (an adhesive) and how to tie it all together (grout). See, you are learning already! We will discuss terminology, tools, cutting techniques, materials, grouting, and adhesives.

We will create using glass products in this class (stained glass and vitreous glass tile). The instructor will cover terminology, substrates, adhesives, andamento (the way a line of tessera is laid) and design. Students may choose from a sampling of simple existing designs to create a 10” x 10” mosaic. The rest of the first day and the second day will be spent working on your mosaic piece. Students will work towards finishing their mosaic by the end of day two so we may grout on the last day - which will be shorter than the other days.

Please bring the following to class: smock or apron. Previous experience is not required to take this class.
