Beginning & Advanced Mosaic Classes

 

mothFind yourself oddly attracted to BLING-BLING? Ever felt like smashing things? Ready to go beyond paper? If so, this is the workshop for you. At the end of the month you will be well experienced and have a vast knowledge of the mosaic world and the techniques you need to make just about anything covered in brightly colored glass and tile. Our project will be an insect (butterfly, dragonfly, firefly, moth, etc.) of your design or choosing. I wIll teach you the best way to create gorgeous patterns and compositions using fabulous colored opaque glass. We will learn about the best products to create long lasting and beautiful mosaics both indoors and out. You will fall in love with the intensity of the medium and take great pride in creating something so permanent. I promise you will find the class to be extremely cathartic and satisfying.

Sat & Sun, March 7 & 8

mosaic stepping stone

 

 

Stepping Stone / Bench


stepping stoneThis is its on form of garden art that gives your garden year round color and shine. Each student will design and lay glass for a 14" stepping stone. You can choose round, square or heart shaped. We are doing the indirect method which leaves you with a smooth and friendly surface. This is also the technique we use to make our wonderful benches. Students learn proper placement skills, the best materials to use as well as successful mixing and pouring techniques. After this class you will be experts in garden bench and stepping stone construction. Stones are poured at the end of the day and can be picked up after 'birthing' the next day.

 

Lab fee is included in the cost of the class ($115). Extra stones can be made at $20/each.

 

For those interested in doing benches, you may sign up for 2 days (Sat & Sun) for $240.

Beaded bottle

 

Beaded Bottle

 

I can’t help but be a little giddy about this art form.


In this class we learn the art of mosaicking with beads. This adds a new level of texture and charm to our mosaic pieces. Our substrate will be bottles but this method of application can be used in many different disciplines. I provide all materials you will need to complete your project though you are welcome to bring any special charms, jewels or trinkets. We learn about the best new adhesive and techniques for application that will change how you create art. Since discovering this method it has become a favorite of mine and my students. Pull out all those great beads you have in your drawers and come join the fun.
9:30-4:00.

 

Potluck and homemade bread.

Cost $140. Information to come.

Journal Extravaganza

Two-day-Travel-Art-Journal-Making-Drawing-Painting Extravaganza!!!!!

 

This is perhaps the most important class I have the pleasure of teaching. Daily Meditation through art journaling has become an extremely important part of my life and this 2-day class will help you begin the journey of telling your story through Right-brain drawing, collage, zentangling and more, more, more. Day one will be construction. You learn how to tear high-quality paper into signatures that are sewn together to create your custom journal. Then we begin to sharpen our observation muscles with drawing exercises. We learn the basics of watercolor and play with transfers, collage and cornucopia of creative media. The results will be a journal that is your new best friend. I can't recommend this class enough for people really ready to take on a new level of creativity.

 

Price of $240 includes all materials. Bring your own favorite watercolor set and drawing pen.

Drawing

So You Think You Can't Draw

 

This is a Drawing and Painting Class being offered twice a year for those that want discover the power and peace of drawing as a form of meditation. We will look at the differences in our drawing techniques using our brain’s ability to process what we see. We have a creative side and an analytical side. In this class we strengthen both sides through a series of exercises designed to give the students confidence and strong skills in their ability to draw what they see as well as express themselves creatively. This is a serious drawing class and will be limited to 10 students. Bring your own journal or sketch pad. We will also be practicing watercolor techniques. Class starts at 10 and goes to 4. Cost is $115.

Garden Sphere


Garden spheresI finally figured out how to teach this class in only 2 days. I will pre-make the concrete, hollow spheres for students to purchase. This is the part that takes so much time. These two days will be spent learning to mosaic an art piece that will last for years in your garden. You will be an expert with thinset by lunch the first day. We learn basic design ideas, nipping techniques and the best adhesives to use.

 

Cost for the class is $240 Lab fee is determined by your choice of sphere size. Small (10") is an additional $20, large (15") is an additional $55. Class cost includes all use of tools, adhesives, grouts etc. to finish your new garden sculpture.

 

It is extremely helpful to have some mosaic experience before taking this class. Please consider Mosaics 101 as a good prep class or contact katherine.

 

As always we will potluck for lunch. I promise homemade bread.
