Mosaics 2B-Ceramic Mosaics with Mesh (JAN 13 and 20, mornings)
Two sessions, Friday Jan 13 and 20, 2023, 9 am to noon.
Have you wondered how artists make large and/or portable mosaics?
In this ADVANCED BEGINNER class, you will design your mosaic on fiberglass MESH (using your own broken ceramics or tiles) and then apply it to a flat substrate.
You learn how to:
- Create a PORTABLE flat mosaic with mesh
- Apply tesserae (broken ceramics or tile) with the appropriate adhesive, and
- Attach the portable mosaic to a flat substrate
NOTE: This is the last time I'll teach this class for beginners, so I have been providing a set of used tile nippers to the participants. Registration fee includes instruction, a wooden substrate, mesh, and adhesives. There may be homework!!!
If you are not sure if you are advanced enough, please email the instructor before registering.
STUDENTS BRING: Your own tesserae (evenly broken pottery or thin FLAT tiles). When you register, the instructor will email you with detailed instructions on how the class will proceed, what materials & tools to buy and bring, and how to prep the materials.
Two sessions; total class time 5+ hours.
LIMITED to 6 participants. Minimum age 18.
Classes 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.
