Mosaic Art for Outdoors (Completion)
Time & Location
About the Event
Jill Gatwood is an established Mosaic artist.
Have you been dreaming of learning mosaic tiling? Maybe doing a garden wall, sculpture or wall mural? This is the workshop for you.
In this class, you will learn everything you need to get started as a mosaic artist. I will teach you several techniques to complete your very own mosaic tile art piece.
One the first day of class, you will learn about various materials, tiles, techniques and how to use the tools of the trade, tile nippers, vitreous glass tiles, and thin-set mortar. You will use two techniques to create your own mosaic on a cement brick (7 x 7 inch).
The second day, you will learn to grout your piece and complete another mosaic piece using found objects (shells, beads, coins, nuts and bolts, wood, pebbles, etc, etc) on Hardibacker.
This class has given past students the skills and confidence to complete their own garden wall mosaics, kitchen backsplashes, patio tables, outdoor skulls and so much more !
With your new experience and skills gained in this workshop, you'll be finding new things to mosaic tile and nothing will be safe.
No artistic ability needed. Beginners welcome !
