Both workshops are designed to interest and challenge mosaic makers of all experience levels.
A good understanding of basic mosaic principles and vocabulary is helpful but not necessary.
Course Description: Strata Various
OBJECTIVE: to learn to see unique tessera potential in most any material, and then maximize
that potential by shape, angle, spacing, and proximity to other materials.
HOW YOU’LL GET THERE:
1. Processing materials (stone, glass, and more) with a variety of tools
2. Creating striated mosaic sample boards as visual reminders of techniques.
1. Building and rigging your own durable, lightweight substrate
2. Properties of thinset mortar (tip, embed, nestle, and build up those tesserae!
3. Effective use of empty space (vive la vacancy!)
4. Much more!
(The one-day Between Black and White: Working in Grayscale workshop on 4/17 is the follow-
on to this workshop; a great opportunity to build a mosaic start to finish using everything learned
in Strata Various PLUS learn a host of new information about working effectively in grayscale.
$60 discount off the total cost for MSoP members who register for both workshops.)
Course Description: Grayscale
Kelley mines her several years of experience in creating mosaic artworks almost exclusively
without color to bring students a wealth of practical tips for effective us of value (light to dare),
gradient, and contrast. Students practice what they’re learning in real time by creating a small,
ungrouted, abstract mosaic from diverse grayscale (black, white, gray, clear) materials using a
contrasting or neutral thinset as adhesive.
(Strata Various: Mix and Master Materials in Mosaic workshop, 4/15-4/16, is designed to be a
prequel (though not required!) to this workshop: build strong, light mosaic substrates, learn to
use a variety of tools for processing; effectively use varied (stone, ceramic, glass, found objects,
etc.) and multi-height materials together. $60 discount off the total cost for students who take
