Garden Paver Workshop

April 20th, 2019
Saturday 10am-5pm

Level: Beginner/Intermediate

Students will be introduced to the contemporary double direct method of building mosaics. This technique allows the student to place glass pieces, tesserae, on a sticky surface which will cover a drawing of your choosing. Use your own drawing or my templates as a guide, you will place glass mosaic pieces on top of the image you choose. The entire art piece is on a board so it’s easy to move and transport. Materials can be easily changed or swapped out until the design is finalized.

In this one day workshop students will be introduced to the types of glass applicable to mosaic and will learn to use mosaic tools to cut and shape glass into tesserae (the pieces that make a mosaic). Each student will be guided through the design process to create a Garden Paver for exterior display. Glass mosaic design, double direct method, direct method, and grouting technique will be discussed. I will send you home with material to grout at home. Adhesives, substrates, terminology, finishing will be presented. 

No previous mosaic experience necessary. However, the more mosaic experience you have determines the detail in your mosaic. Repeat this workshop to fine tune your cutting/design skills.
