3D Sculptural Mosaic Flower Workshop

October 27 @ 3:00 pm - October 29 @ 4:00 pm

- $425.00

Student Rosie Eckberg’s Mosaic from August 4-6 workshop

During this three-day workshop, you will learn a variety of skills and techniques to create your very own 3D Sculptural Mosaic Flower. We will begin by creating carved, highly textured clay tiles which will be fired overnight to be included in your mosaic in the following days. Next, you will learn how to use power tools to cut and shape the wedi board base, how to prepare your piece to be weatherproof and how to prepare it for adding your mosaic. You will also learn how to create the structure necessary to eventually hang your creation on a wall or mount it on a pole. Designs for your piece will be discussed ahead of the workshop, and on day two the design will be transferred to your wedi board, including the clay tiles you created on day one. Finally, you’ll have the freedom to create your mosaic using everything from the custom clay tiles you created on day one to stained glass, mirror pieces, glass gems and much more. Mixing and coloring grout will be demonstrated, but as this is a large project, the mosaic and grout will have to be completed on your own time or at a future open session in my studio. Complete handouts with a resource list will be included.
