This workshop will introduce you Picassiette; a style of mosaic that incorporates pieces of broken ceramics-plates, dishes, cups, tiles and other found objects into the design. Supplies are provided, but feel free to bring your favorite broken or cracked heirlooms and make something magical.
Student will be introduced to basic terminology, safety and tools for making a mosaic while creating a special artwork that can be created using everyday items in your home. On Day 1, students will be guided through the step by step process to create a one of a kind mosaic. Day 2 will be shorter as you finish by grouting and cleaning your piece. The final project will be an approx. 12”. This two-day workshop is a level I beginner class, no prior experience needed. From here the sky is the limit.
