Mosaics 3B-Tapestry Method-Advanced (JUL 9 and JUL 16, mornings)
Have you completed Mosaics 3A-Using the Tapestry Method, but would like to try more complex designs?
In this class, you create a custom abstract tapestry mosaic on a lightweight substrate (like Wedi board), applying your personal 'bling' tesserae with premixed, colored thinset.
You will learn how to:
- Create your own design (with help from the instructor)
- Prepare the lightweight substrate (like Wedi board)
- Apply premixed thinset and different colorants
This class is for INTERMEDIATE-ADVANCED mosaic students who have completed Mosaics 3A or a similar class. Registration fee includes instruction, use of tools, a substrate, and adhesives. The instructor will send a reminder email in the week before class.
STUDENTS BRING: Your own bling (about 2-4 cups or baggies) like broken jewelry, gems, chains, anything metal (belt buckles, buttons, watch parts, small gears, etc.), and beads, colored glass, etc., but no plastic. You can bring your own cement colorants, as well. They can be purchased locally at Tucson Stained Glass or online.
Two sessions; total class time 5+ hours.
LIMITED to 4 participants with Covid-19 protocols. Minimum age 16.
Class taught at Blue Raven Art School (720 E Prince Rd).
Class and workshop registration fees are non-refundable. If you miss a class, you can take another of the same value within 3 months of the original one or give it to someone else. However, you need to send me an email to make these changes.
