Mosaic Workshop 2nd February 2019

Following on from the series of Workshops held during SALA this year I am pleased to announce a further mosaic workshop will be held on Saturday February 2nd at Mclaren Unvaled, 122 Main St, Mclaren Vale.
$75 per session, bookings through Eventbrite

Time: Saturday 2nd February 2019 10.00am – 2.00pm. There will be a 15 minute tea/coffee break or something to eat so please bring a snack.

Workshop Details

Each mosaic workshop will offer the opportunity to work in a small group with artist Kay Whitmarsh, with a maximum of 6 people per group.
Any skill level is fine from ‘come and try’ to needing help with a particular piece. Max size pieces 600mm please. Due to the nature of mosaics you will need to complete your project at home, but you will have all the necessary skills to do that.
A limited range of base materials will be included in the cost (glue, 300 x 300 board, some tiles, beads) or you can bring your own materials and equipment. I am also happy to assist with a piece you are currently working on. Previous participants have brought a variety of their favourite coloured tiles, beads, precut mosaic glass and various MDF shapes or even pieces of slate to work on.
