In this session, we will explore the entire mixed media mosaic process. We will begin with a description of common mosaic tools available and the function of each. We will then explain the differences between types of materials used such as substrates, types of adhesives, and types of glass such as beads, smalti, ceramic tiles, china, etc. Finally we will learn how to create your pattern and glue everything into place followed by demonstrating final detail techniques.
There's always plenty of room at the demo. See you there!

In this Mosaic workshop participants will create a free-form Mosaic design that will allow them to use color choices and design as far as their imagination will take them. We will work on mosaic concepts like the flow of design and how to balance shapes and textures. Various items, including stained glass, glass tiles and beads, and other intriguing materials in unique shapes and sizes will be provided. You can bring your own special pieces. There is no grouting involved. Participants can expect to learn some nipping, fitting, and embedding techniques. Size : 8" x 8"
In case the student is not able to finish they are very welcome to get the work done at 310 Gallery in Richmond.
