This year I am organising some mosaic workshops.
They will follow a similar format to the mosaic workshops I conducted last year to co-incide with with the SALA festive. That is working with a small group so that each person can have an opportunity to learn at their own pace. This means that everyone can work on their own project, and the whole group is not completing the same design. The main advantage of this for the participants is to see a variety of different things happening during the workshop.
Topics covered will be:
Working with a variety of materials. These can include Tiles, glass beads, found items, precut mosaic glass, etc. I will also explain Cutting and shaping of ceramic tiles.
Please note: the facilities at this workshop will not cover glass or glass cutting.
Design and style tips. Specifically, how to make your designs pop with the use of flat colour, how to make shapes more defined, how grout lines work as a design tool, how to achieve 3D imagery, colour and integrating grout colours into design.
Grouting techniques will cover how to grout flat objects as well as 3D objects, multiple grout colours. How to make your grout work for you.
Come and learn from an experienced artist all the tips and tricks to make your projects look amazing and expand the range of effects you can create.
