Mixed media mosaic workshop

2020-04-01 @ 9:00 am - 2020-04-03 @ 4:00 pm

3 day mosaic techniques workshop by Kathryn Spooner Bossy
April 1-3
9am-4pm
Limited to 12 spaces
Cost: $275 which includes a $60 materials fee
Location: Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1817 Richardson Side Road, Carp

In this hands-on mosaic workshop we will discuss historical and modern mosaic techniques, the importance of design, colour and texture.

Each participant will create 2 mosaics using a carefully curated selection of glass, ceramic, tile, beads and more. One mosaic will be a grouted abstract and the other will be a floral mosaic collage to match the abstract. The goal is to free the mind and to let each participant enjoy the process from designing patterns to finishing their unique creations…..with lots of discussion and demonstrations in between.

No experience with glass is necessary. This workshop would suit seasoned creatives, those seeking inspiration for their own art practice OR those interested in trying something new.

We will be working with the adhesives Weldbond and E6000 and also tile grout. Masks and gloves will be provided. There is a lot of clipping using mosaic tools; people with
carpal tunnel or arthritis issues would find this too difficult.

Kathryn will provide all materials and tools required for this 3 day workshop.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Kathryn will contact each participant before the workshop to discuss patterns, mosaic sizes and colour choices.
